Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

The Cutty Sark is gone. Every bit as important, historic, and iconic a vessel as the USS Constellation is to Baltimore, or Old Ironsides is to Boston, these ships are both loved by the peoples of their cities and around the world.

What a shame! I was priviliged to see it two years ago when I visited London. I'll have to dig through my photos and see if I have some good ones to share.

    I think it was just very badly damaged. It'll be back. It is cool, though.

    That's terrible. Unfortunately, I've never been to London

    It's namesake blended whisky is sketchy stuff, but I think I need to haul a Meantime IPA out of the basement and consume in the poor ship's honor. It's a sad compliment to the neighboring Charlton footballers getting relegated this year. Sigh.
