In Moot Member Blogs Odds and Ends on Virus Entry Tools Rating: 1 Stars!

By virus, I refer to the Chinese Virus, bot did not wish to use it in the title for fear of moderator editing. I also debating adding "Not Traveller Virus", but decided that might get the moderators upset as well. I guess you would say that those thoughts are included in my Odds and Ends.

Weirdest Story (so far): The train engineer who tried to crash his train into the Navy hospital ship docked at Los Angeles. After reading several accounts, I can only assume that when he gets a public defender appointed, the lawyer will try to work up an insanity plea. Given that he was caught in the act, he is toast otherwise. Hopefully, they can hit him with terrorist charges as well, given his target. Whatever the case, this cretin needs to be filed away for a very long time.

Navy Carrier Captain: Him being fired was a given once the story hit the news. He was reporting on the personnel status of his ship. As a battalion staff officer in the 1970s, I was responsible for preparing the personnel portion of our unit readiness report which was forward up the chain of command to ForceCom. Those reports were classified, and I did not let any other person in my office to see them. The other battalion staff officers submitted their reports to the battalion executive officer and battalion commander, and then up the line. The report I prepared was classified "Confidential", while the battalion report was classified "Secret". Basically, this captain panicked and blasted out a memo to a wide range of people, some of which were not in any way, shape, or form authorized to have it. One of them passed it on to the press. If I had done that as a 1st Lieutenant, I probably would have been court-martialed, reduced in rank, served time, and received a "Dishonorable Discharge". Because of his rank, he was relieved of command, and I assumed told to retire. He will never have command of another ship, nor make Admiral. Do I sympathize with him? NO. I do sympathize with the flack the Navy CNO is going to get for firing this individual.

What is online tends to stay online: Some of the conservative groups have been mining the main street miss-named media for what was being said in late January and February. It is quite interesting to see what they said then verses now. What a hideous bunch of hypocrites the so-called main street media are. I quit paying attention to them for any comments regarding Trump or Republicans quite a while ago. Then there is the anti-Christian bias showing up more and more. I keep wondering when the New York Times will come right out ans say what they are thinking, that being all Christians must be eliminated.

One other thing that is fascinating. The photos online of wild and feral animals wandering down deserted streets in Europe and elsewhere. I just wonder when a picture of a moose in downtown Anchorage will show up, although that would not be unusual at all for Alaska.
