I am not removing the Moby Dick quote, as it's a nice epigraph, but as it stands it is a little misleading: Melville quotes this line form Cpt. William Scoresby's Journal of a Voyage to the Northern Whale-Fishery (1823). Melville's name is probably a more striking reference, but I am unsure of a succinct way to clarify the true author.
I find it ludicrous that the only image in this article shows a fox. --Etxrge 06:42, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
