An observation

I've had a picture of Commander Bligh  on this very blog [Down on the lower right side], on my previous blog, and use it as an avatar on the Horror Writers Association forum. Yet, no one has ever asked me why I have a picture of Commander Bligh here. Usually referred to as "Captain Bligh," he was not a captain, as I understand it. He was a lieutenant commander. Which is why I refer to him as Commander Bligh. The HMS Bounty was an insignificant little tub that was sent on a mission to bring breadfruit trees to the new world as a cheap source of protein for slaves. Well, that didn't work out quite so well.

Tally Ho
