Dennis Miller Joins The Right-Wing

I heard Dennis Miller tonight, guest-hosting the Sean Hannity show on the ABC News channel on XM Radio. Geez. I knew he was drifting to the right, but I never dreamed that he had signed up. The tide continues to rise.

USX And HVP Loads

Received a complaint on the satcom today from USX, reminding us that on HVP (high value loads) we’re supposed to notify them every time we stop.
