“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Happy 236th

On this date the Continental Congress authorized the formation of a Navy for these United States. Since then we have led the way in war and peace around the world. Happy birthday shipmates!

No comparisons, no jokes, no needling.

Just a happy birthday sent to you and yours.

That just makes me feel old, as I look at the "200th Birthday" commemorative coin I received while on active duty ... way back when.

Oh well, Happy Birthday, Bluejackets!
