  Niche Insurance Run Amok
Seems the competitors in the upcoming VisitScotland Adventure Triathalon will receive up 1 million pounds if they are attacked by the Loch Ness Monster.

Now, as an amateur Nessie buff (listen to my CBC Radio Doc about the Creature, The Meaning of Monster), I'm not sure if this is crazy or not. Odds are, there's nothing carnivorous living in Loch Ness. On the other hand, it's impossible to shake the vague feeling of dread you get when swimming in the storied loch. If some paleothic beast took a chunk out of my leg, I'd like to think my bets were hedged. What price peace of mind?

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
