Do you have a paperboy? You know, one of those kids who walk the neighborhood with a bag strapped over his shoulder, throwing newspapers on your front step with the accuracy of a hall of fame pitcher?

This practice of the Pilot boats delivering newspapers to ships and tugs when they are delivering pilots, has been going on forever. It's a nice touch, I must say.
When I first started in this business, they would often deliver, along with the newspaper, a carton of Marlboro cigarettes.
You don't see that anymore.
