It really wasn’t my intention to Mass-bash today — God knows the great respect I have for the venerable old commonwealth — but sometimes they just make it too easy for me to resist. Such is the case when a story involves two of my great passions: Great White Sharks and hapless libs.

The Cape Cod Times (August 10, 2007) informs us that:

[…] Chatham [Mass] harbor master Stuart Smith said that while his office has fielded plenty of reports over the last two or three years about Great White sightings, there has been no photo or video documentation.

Well, ok, but what about the 15 foot, one ton Great White shark that Massachusetts officials actually TAGGED in Cape Cod three years ago?

Does that count?
