This time you’re going down, Moby Dick.

I hope as many readers out there as have time for it will join in Comradde PhysioProffe‘s interdisciplinary excursion into Melvilleana over at his blog. If you’re interested, be sure to click on over and let him know.

  1. Love this version since the first time I heard it, much better than the Peter, Paul, and Mary version. For me the payoff is

    But to lose a hundred-barrel fish it grieved him ten times more”
    which reverses the PPM logic.
