    wow!!!!

    this whole set up is ridiculous and stupid!! why does everyone think the public should be informed before our government/military does things?? people need to grow up and realize not everything is always fair and somethings they just don't need to know!

    I think the whole thing is absolutely ridiculous, too. And the sad thing is.....the USCG is probably going to end up looking like the bad guy, even though it was the press who blew it all out of proportion and caused the panic in the first place. I'd be willing to bet that most of the people who work in and/or frequent that area are used to seeing the CG on the Potomac....probably don't give it a second thought most days. But today, with CNN whipping everybody into a frenzy, it just got out of hand. I know this is a terrible day for alot of people. I have a dear friend who was working at the WTC that day....she barely made it out alive so I can relate. But....and not to sound insensitive.....not everybody can take the day off to attend memorials and such, especially our men and women in uniform. Anyway, just my humble opinion. And oh yeah, I never watch CNN but happened to be channel surfing this afternoon and noticed that the news anchor on that channel was getting ready to interview a woman....supposedly a former Assistant Commandant but I can't remember her name. Anyway, the anchor woman didn't even pronounce Commandant correctly. If they can't even get that right, then I'd say they have a problem. : )
