Drove past the Philadelphia Navy Shipyard a couple of weeks ago, it was very sad to see 2 Aegis cruisers there. Half the haul was pink, didn't even have hull numbers.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

Earlier this year SecNav Spencer said that if the AWEs weren't working by this summer, he'd resign (or should be fired).  I wonder if he's going to honor that pledge?

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

Well, to be fair. PRESIDENT Ford's elevators didn't all go to the top floor either.  ::)
