Best... On-Line Poll Option... Ever

From the Camden County, Georgia, Tribune & Georgian website comes what I think is the most revealing on-line poll option I've ever seen. It's on the left side of the page of either the main page, or these BRAC-related articles, and asks:

"What do you think about the BRAC commission decision to keep Naval Submarine Base, New London, open and not transfer some of its submarines to Kings Bay?"

Now some of the options are fairly uninspired, such as "We should just be thankful that Kings Bay wasn’t on the list of bases to be closed" and "It’s a terrible shame the BRAC commission allowed emotional politics to keep them from making a sound fiscal decision and closing an antiquated base". The best option for this boomer haven, though, and unfortunately currently running in last place, is this: "We did not need all those attack sub sailors running around here anyway." Absolutely classic. They obviously know that the fast attack tough guys would drink all their beer and date all their daughters... or swim in their toilets and piss in their pools... or whatever else fast boat Sailors do on liberty.

Going deep...

I'm thinking I'm gonna need to paint a nice, big, red and white target on my chest the more I hang around here.

Kidding aside, I can see their point of view, after having been stationed there for almost 6 years. When we DO get SSNs in KBay, their visits are typically tarnished by the base having to assist in posting bail, repairing a bar, or (in one incident) removing a couple sailors who though it would be cool to see what was inside the condemned paper plant building.

So, yeah, the town typically does not look kindly upon visiting sailors in general, and especially upon those who have set precedent with their brashness and irresponsibility.

In the meantime, I'll paint this target on my chest, and stand by for the thorough lashing I am about to receive :)
