    They had aircraft, they had spotters, they had speedboats, they had bombs they were throwing in the water, they were lighting their own bombs with acetylene torches in their boats and throwing them as fast as they could to herd the whales into coves

      Hello fellow Seattlite! The herding with bombs is pretty screwed up.

    Puget Sound. I haven't heard that name in a few years. I spent a lot of time on those waters. I miss Seatle and wish I did more when I was there. Ill check out the article.
