I was very pleased by the fine article about me by Noah Asimow in last week’s Gazette. But I have to make a correction. When I said that I don’t play golf or tennis or own a boat, I misspoke. As many know, we do have a family sailboat, a most beautiful 21-foot Bella built by our friends Ross Gannon and Nat Benjamin more than 20 years ago called the Rosalee, which is moored in Vineyard Haven harbor. What I should have said is that I don’t sail. When my wife Rosalee and I go out in it, we require “valet sailing” provided by one of our sons.
