I spent a delightful hour talking with one fisherman who has saved over a hundred men and women from drowning, has as many medals for life-saving as any general for his campaigns, and at seventy odd is as ready as of old to take an 80-foot dive after a drowning man. Still he earns a hard, small living by fishing and shrimping in all weathers. He still sings at his work, but would like a little ease, and has indeed earned it. Someone should give it him.
