Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

Quick Notes

1) The FY08 Chief results came out last week; as usual, there are a lot of great submariners on the list. Congratulations to all those selected! (And, as usual, for those not selected -- next year will be your year!) For those E-mailing for the words to the Submarine Song, I'll try to get those out to you as soon as I can.

2) If you want to have some fun today, lurk around Daily Kos or Democratic Underground and watch their heads spin as they come up with conspiracy theories to explain Karl Rove's upcoming resignation.

3) Those silly Russians! Seriously, those of us with recent active duty experience know what happened the last few times the Russian Navy tried to move back up to the varsity level -- (we won't talk about it here, of course). If the Russian Air Force wants to do the same thing, it'll just provide some great training opportunities for our guys -- so they should bring it on. Hopefully the Russian planes won't fall out of the sky during their long overwater flights. (That's not an intimation that they'll be shot down; it's a hope that they won't suffer a mechanical breakdown.)

Never mind all that! I have reason to believe that a copy of a certain recently released children's book is at this very moment winging its way towards me! At this precise moment, it should be heading south through the Idaho panhandle!

Rove is going to take a break to write his book (to be released as an October surprise) and then jump on whomever the GOP nominee winds up being.

Must admit Midwatchcowboy's explanation intrigues without passing the smell test. Why would a GOP stalwart go postal on the GOP nominee?

Rove's seemingly early departure may signal a serious health issue, most likely his own, or, more likely, preparation to strategize a victory for the GOP nominee. Would you be surprised if Karl already knows who that will be?

My husband made it and so far he's been having loads of fun. However, another Nav ET who didn't make the 48% advancement has been made aware through certain un-named channels that the govt. purposefully didn't advance him because they didn't want someone who knows the "truth" about thermite in the twin towers, in a position of power.
