News From Today
Here's what I found on my doorstep when I got home from work tonight:
Sonalysts is developing a new PC video game, SCS -- Dangerous Waters. The highly anticipated follow-up to Sub Command will apparently feature a 600 page (!) manual... Now I've gotta go get my PC upgraded so I can play it when it comes out.
President Carter joined the chorus calling for SUBASE New London to be removed from the base closure list. With President Carter being from Georgia, the state that would most benefit from the Groton closure, this is especially significant. Humorous screw-ups in this article on the letter include saying that USS Jimmy Carter cost $3.2 million and the continued assertion that it's the most heavily-armed submarine ever made (obviously thinking that 50 torpedos are more powerful than 24 D-5 Trident missiles).
Robin Burk posts an important story over at Winds of Change. Check it out if you get a chance.
Update 2118 19 Aug: As a bonus, here's a thread from those wacky progressives over at Democratic Underground where they debate whether or not we should have invaded Afghanistan after 9/11. Because these seem to be the type of Democrats who have an inordinate influence in the primary elections, you can see why it's so hard for the Dems to nominate a viable candidate.
