Valley Boy in SF Waters

Since Tom Perkins and his ship, The Maltese Falcon, sailed into the Bay the other weekend, I decided to borrow Monsieur’s copy of Perkins’ memoir Valley Boy: The Education of Tom Perkins. It’s quite a good read, if only because this man’s life is rather adventurous. The best chapter I’ve read is regarding his position on the board for the San Francisco Ballet. The writing is, well…Perkins is a VC and not a literary genius…yet it’s tolerable.

Anyway, here is the ship (yes, she’s really really big) sailing in…

Monsieur and I saw the ship yesterday, so she’s still around for a while. Worth seeing.
