I'm off to the dentist (again) at oh-too-early today, then to work where I get to race the holiday with a pair of major-big-deal projects while Mom is in the hospital. On the other hand, I have a house and the heat and light works.

World War Next

China launches aircraft carrier ahead of schedule! Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia! Who gets to be the next Manchukuo?

WikiLeaks Leaks Russian Secrets

Little something for those of you who were grousing how Julian "Mr. Class" Assange was only releasing item that damaged the United States government. Nope, he's a general stepper-on of toes. Not all of his unwilling dancing partners play as nice as our guys; in this case he has (oh shock horror) linked the highest levels of the Russian government to (dramatic fanfare) organized crime! Who could'a guessed?

I remain in favor shining light into the bloated dark places of nation-states; it's unfortunate that Assange is an uber-jerk and even more so that he encourages half-wits to forsake their oaths...but if you leave "secret" info out where a secretarial-pool PFC can get at it, just how secret was it, really?

Hang in there Bobbi! They can't hurt you... you are way too tough!

Fuzzy Curmudgeon said...

I guess Assange had better start preparing for more polonium in his diet.

Dear PLAN:

Please continue to invest toil and treasure in developing carriers and carrier aviation and the personnel infrastructure and traditions of carrier aviation that the USN has been working on for the last 70 years.

Those cheap hole-in-the-sea diesel electric subs are so lame. Carriers are SO YOU.

Hell, Bobbi, I know you're looking forward to the release of the Bank of American secrets from Wikileaks!

Say again? The Chinese have launched a big fat target? Thoughtful.

I hope you're doing better today.

A Swedish prison might be his safest choice after this.
