Rude Awakening

At 4am this morning I was rudely awakened by someone punching me in the jugular. That someone was me, assisted by my right fist. You know that stage of sleep where you are not quite awake and not quite asleep, where you often startle yourself completely awake? Well my “startling awake” was more of a…

Happy Birthday, Isaac

Five years ago he was just a fellow intern at the Dolphin Research Center.
