I had thought I’d been sleeping unduly long — 9 to 11 hours at times if I can get away with it — until I read a report in the weekly science section of The New York Times on the so-called glymphatic system, which takes out the trash, as it were, from the brain while one is in Never-Never Land.
“So what is removed from our brains as we sleep?” I asked Mary, who is as much of an insomniac as I am a narcoleptic, this morning.
Dan White, who coaches Pierson High School’s boys basketball team, said following a barn burner in Sag Harbor with Bridgehampton’s Killer Bees that he couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Arguably White would have said the same thing even had his team lost, which it didn’t. The Whalers, whom the Bees played toe-to-toe throughout almost the entire game, rode Forrest Loesch’s hot hand that day to a 70-61 victory.
