  • Northwest Passage Update

    climate, singing  [html]
    Singing Stan Rogers' Northwest Passage with friends this evening I realized these days it needs an update. People suggested lyrics, and here's a filked tag to sing after the song:

    In this warm clime, I have sailed the Northwest Passage

    Lyrics by Kip, Mel, Lisa, me, and others.

    When preparing various maps proposing high-speed rail in Germany, I was told that it looks nice but it overfocuses on the largest cities and not about connecting the entirety of the country. I’ve seen such criticism elsewhere, asserting that high-speed ra…
