Quick Post

Reaction from the Utah papers on the decommissioning of USS Salt Lake City (SSN 716) can be found here and here.

And, from Japan, comes big news... expect protests in the streets of Yokosuka.

Going deep...

Update 0745 30 Oct: Here's a picture from the Slave Labor Camp's inactivation ceremony.

Bell-ringer 0751 30 Oct: Searching for the post that Skippy-San mentioned in the comments, I noted that he's been very busy lately... but go for the thought-provoking posts, not the pictures of beautiful young women in skimpy clothing...

And the protests ended up being in Hiroshima....

Actually the reaction has been not as severe as I would have thought. Koizumi is so strong now after the election that the DPJ is really not in a position to oppose him. As for the Yokosuka mayor , the Japanese governemnt will do what it always does, buy him off with jobs projects.

The big focus here in Japan is Okinawa and the Navy is going to do some really stupid moves to throw the Japanese a bone, like possibbly moving the CVW down to Iwakuni. See my post at my blog on the subject.

Long story on NHK tonight about the whole thing........

Al Reuters ..... almost as bad as the editorial page of the NYT/IHT.

As for the spamfolks. With the "p" word in your title, you should start getting some fun ones.
