If I'm reading that right, you disabled 563 combat squads - the bayonet strength of *two divisions*. It'll take a while to recover from that.

Cats and Dorniers. The AK at Dili had been damaged in attacks yesterday. The have been on continuous naval attack/naval search duty and have hit many other vessels as well. I think I may have transferred some pilots in from the Dutch reserve pool. Also, they have a really good dental plan and life insurance plan

But do they have coverage for your annual medical? Or do they have to drop their drawers?

I have this idea for a screenplay (no stealing).


Frustrated football coach at unspecified FSU-like university hires a geneticist to clone Neanderthal players for interior lineman positions.

The geneticist posts an innocuous looking ad in the school newspaper:

<an attractive, though broad hipped young coed sits in the school quad browsing the school newspaper>

"Large-boned women aged 18-26 sought for scientific, trial. 5 figure compensation with full medical coverage. Must be in good health and available for 10 month commitment."

<cue atonal violin 1/8th notes..followed by slow tympany drum of increasing intensity>



The musical suggestions are, of course, just a sketch. We could hire a professional for that.

Yes, they are throwing everything into this. No landing on Luzon yet. We might be able to kick them out of Geelong and get those 4 brigades into Melbourne.

I hope these guys aren't digging foxholes at the MCG, it'll take years for the wicket to recover from that.
