Shanghai has to be one of the stranger words.  I wonder how many people in the city of know that the name of their city is synonymous with this forceable employment.    Well, today, we’re going to watch it happen . . . live (sort of) on this blog.  Bohemia and Quantico Creek head west, when suddenly

there it starts to happen . . . these two units are about to disappear.

That’s it, the deed is done. . .

for a few seconds, and then all

is well as the two Vane units continue for some dock in Bayonne.

San Francisco had its James Kelly.  Is there a New York name associated with the practice?
