finishing line

People are usually comforted by numbers, at least when the numbers lean their way.  Imagine how comforted the Vendee Globe is with theirs, as noted below!  Photo showing what 150,000 people at a sailing event really looks like, thanks to Christophe Launay.

There is a number however that is equally disturbing, and that is that there was zero coverage of this historic event in the US mainstream media. In a country with an obsession with all sorts of “extreme” sports, how pitiful that perhaps the most extreme sport of them all generated no interest from an incredibly lazy media. Look for a more in-depth piece on this topic later. Now take a look at the good numbers…
