  1. I would love to know more about magnolia, the ecology around stellwagen bank, and the history of the fish packing plants (working conditions etc.) in particular.

    As for things I know, I know quite a bit about stellwagen bank already, such as the effects of it being an underwater plateau, but I would still like to know more. I also know about the politics of the NOAA regulation of the fishing industry.

    Gloucester, to me, has always been a beautiful place with unsettling people. A lot of the time, I love walking on the boulevard and being able to smell the salt in the air and feel the midday sun, and hear the cries of gulls and gradual sloshing of waves on the beach, But then a group of disheveled men walk by, drinking and smoking and laughing and coughing and wheezing, or I hear a story about how my friend was followed home by a bearded man that smelled like sweat and alcohol, who asked her how old she was, smiling a nearly toothless grin.. It is then that I remember what the city I live in really stands for, and why I want a change.
