Our Class Column in shipmate does not include death notices or obits, as they are listed in Shipmate's Last Call and obituary sections. As Secretary I also refrain from including any references to classmate illnesses, or "woes." The reason is to keep the column focus on positive matters, and interesting features. However, that does not mean that classmates are all running around like the Plebes they once were 67 years ago. I will post input received on this Log from classmates who include their health problems so that their friends may give them a call (or email) to chat if so desired. Recommendation - Please get off your duff, look up the telephone number (or email ID) of some of your old classmates and give them a call (or email). Although they may not have indicated that they are "on a binnacle list," or have now stopped running the 100 yard dash, it would be nice to renew (or update) your old friendships. As Fitz Woodrow, our Class President for many years once announced a long time ago, "It is later than we think." So, why put off a call or two?

Memphis 30 Navy 27 with Navy losing FIVE turnovers --- it could have been worse. Two turnovers were interceptions, and 3 fumbles the QB was responsible for. An exciting game which if Navy had 10 more minutes MIGHT have won...but Memphis had 8 men in the defensive line -- as Navy does not pass -- a no brainer. We need to have a passing threat.

 The word appears in the English section of my Spanish dictionary and the translation says it means "similar to marble". Language is a mystery to me. I just finished a history book in Spanish and the author went to the extreme in using words I have never seen written or ever heard. I looked up over 200 words and my daughter, who gave me the book, asked that I write in the definition of any new word I ran across. It slowed me down but will certainly make it easier for her when she finally finds the time to read this great book.

I have no greater privilege than to serve as your Commander-in-Chief. HAPPY

The entertainment section in today's paper contained a word that I have never heard used before--marmoreal.
I checked it out in the dictionary and found that it means " suggestive of marble or a marble statue, particularly in reference to an individual's aloofness or coldness".
Has anyone ever heard of that word before?

North Korea is a poor carbon copy of the old USSR, and other Communist idealists who established themselves or overthrew other forms of government - many of which realized that people are not the idealists which the communist dogma is based upon. So, the nomenclatura or minority in power forced the majority by force of arms into subjugation and the usual result - famine, corruption, and the deaths of millions. The current "communist" governments in power had to subscribe to capitalism in order to survive. North Korea has not and it is displayed - dramatically, in this photo.

The emphasis is on LEGAL gun owners....makes a lot of sense that anti-gun people simply do not understand.

Les, I wonder if politics have changed or if the news coverage of politics has changed.

My parents always read the evening Shreveport Journal newspaper (10 pages, maybe) and listened to the 15 minute KWKH radio news program at 10:00 PM.

They were sure Mr Roosevelt would fix everything.

I watch 24 hour news TV stations, read the Washington Post, and read The Art of The Deal, ect. I read the opinions of my classmates and have long discussions with my friends and my brother-in-law.

The only thing I'm sure of is that politics are screwed up.

A well-written history of current politics in the U.S. (like some of Weistein’s shenanigans) would probably win a literary prize for comedy!

Bryce, I can't search our data by county. Looking at Area codes and cities it appears that George Parks, Mrs Ralph Davis, and Paul Slawson could be in the area. That's a very rough guess.

If we have any California classmates reading this maybe they could bring us up to date.

Will, do we have classmates living in Sonoma and Napa counties? From the
photos on AOL it looks like Gen Lemay had visited the area with 100 B-29s.
Next rain and mud slides.

Mike, I have replaced the photo on the website. The Puelow incident remains as a major element in the history of our Navy. A review of the incident in U. S. Naval Institute is worth a read.
