The Absurdity That Is Salon

Salon ArticleThis is the headline at for an essay by Lewis Lapham, describing his upbringing in a shipping family and his first time at sea. The episode of his shipmates taking him to a whorehouse is a very minor episode, taking less than one paragraph in a fairly lengthy tale, and is in no way actually relevant to his seagoing experience. The headline, however, illustrates the kind of thinking that prevails at what used to be... Oh, to hell with it.

  1. And you didn't have moments in your seagoing life that didn't stand out like... Oh never mind.
