Firegeezer reports on a landmark structure that burned on Martha's Vineyard yesterday. He links to the local paper, and their coverage of same. Mr. Blogger has never been to Martha's Vineyard, but thinks that burned boathouse looks like the buildings in the movie Jaws, which is one of his all-time favorites. Director Steven Spielberg's 1975 film-- and perhaps the original summer blockbuster-- was filmed in Martha's Vineyard.1 How funny then to find the below photo posted on the newspaper's web site. When breaking news happens, even errant fingers can't get in the way!

1Couple good books on the movie, both the making therein and analysis thereof:  The Jaws Log: 30th Anniversary Edition by Carl Gottlieb; Jaws (BFI Modern Classics) by Antonia Quirke.
