I received six holiday greeting cards at work. Four of them are from ocean researchers or groups. One is from a hunting group that mercifully spared me of a picture of a fish carcass wearing a Santa hat (although, come to think of it, that would be pretty funny — perhaps next year?).  The other is from the crazy libertarians. I would like to thank all of these groups, especially the generous card-giving ocean people, for their holiday cheer. Happy ninth day of Christmas!
