I decided to start a new blog to address and blog about my second avocation - Kings Point - aka "The Zoo" , The United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY. The institution from which I graduated in 1982; the location of the Chapel I go married in on February 21, 1988 - 21 short years ago; the current institution where our only son resides and attends. My other blog - Mark's Musings has pretty much become entirely dedicated to my following of professional hockey in general and the Washington Capitals in particular. This one will attempt to explore topics I and hopefully other Kings Point Alumnus consider timely and improtant in working to elevate the state of Maritime Education and Training, in particular at our Alma Mater and in general throughout the United States. Each blogger who posts articles on this blog will be asked to provide a brief bio so their biases and experiential background can be understood when reading their posts. I hope to get a fair participation so that posts will be frequent enough to start lively debate, interchange and discussion.
