|September 5, 2015. U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy arrives at the North Pole.|
Healy? Where'd they get that name? Wikipedia, as usual, provides the story:
Healy was . . .named in honor of United States Revenue Cutter Service Captain Michael A. Healy (1839 – 1904) . Healy patrolled the 20,000 miles (32,000 km) of Alaskan coastline for more than 20 years, . . After commercial fishing had depleted the whale and seal populations, his assistance with introduction of Siberian reindeer helped prevent starvation among the native Alaskans.I am beginning to suspect that we (as in we - the human race) won't be happy until we have killed and eaten every critter on the planet. And then we'll be sad.
Healy has a web cam. They put up a new pic every hour.
