Oysters in Greenwich
The Greenwich Time reported that hundreds of people showed up for a three-hour event called "Experience the Sound."
Quote of the day from Roger Bowgen, chairman of Greenwich's Shellfish Commission:
"The idea is to open people's eyes to the fact that there are other things to do here than sit on the beach and stare at an iPod."
Of course when you go to the Shellfish Commission's webpage and click on "Shellfish Bed Status," the first thing you see is:
No oysters may be taken from Greenwich waters during the 2006-07 season.
Which is a bit disheartening.
Meanwhile, the New Haven Register apparently thinks that the other things you can do besides sit and stare at an IPod include building a huge liquefied natural gas terminal. The Register's editorial writers think the Broadwater LNG terminal is a good idea, here.
