One good thing about being in port is the air. Another the weather. The benefit that takes the cake: cheerleaders. For the Super Bowl, we had a handful of Denver Bronco cheerleaders who had nothing better to do but come and visit us out in Guam. I guess that’s kind of a cool benefit of being on a submarine. People want to come see what you do where you do it. I guess that makes my job just a little bit awesome.
Speaking of awesome, I think it’s totally incredible what’s happening in Egypt. People are demanding that their government give them the opportunity to have a better future. They’re not wishing ill will on anyone, they just want a collective bump to their society. Their demands are for education, a better handling of their economy and standard of living. I think as Americans, we lose sight of these rights because we enjoy these more readily than other countries of the world. I wish I had cable to see where this all ends up. I’ll just have to keep watching to see how this story will unfold.
