Erik: can you possibly paste the New Yorker piece? I couldn't open the entire article without a subscription.

  Hi All,

I smelled a fun and illuminating story about our harbor when the horn issue
first popped up on our lists, but given my sponsors and identification as
an urban paddler, I knew I couldn't pitch it for myself. Instead I
informed my editor at the New Yorker, Susan Morrison, who assigned it to
Nick, who is a paddler on the Sound and elsewhere. Sympathetic but not
conflicted. I gave him contacts for the cast of characters and I'm glad
that Nancy landed the spotlight!
