Not since 1995 has the venerable America's Cup been won by the United States.
That changed Sunday when a software mogul who runs Oracle did the deed and won the cup for the U.S.A.
We are also winning, so far, the most medals in the winter Olympics in Vancouver.
A side story, unfortunately, is that our America's Cup competitors had to sail through one of The Five Garbage Gyres, those floating continents of garbage now contaminating the oceans of the earth.
We had reported on the first and second gyres, but now we find that there are five of these garbage continents floating out there.
Add to that the Italian Mafia's dumping of large quantities of nuclear poison into the oceans, and it seems like we sail over the oceans as we bring them down.
Are we dangerously fooling around while our Home World dies?
