    Gotta love all those comments from those seafaring folk in Knoxville especially the one about just wait 15 yrs or so for stocks to rebuild… or something like that… too bad the “D” bag doesn’t realize that the fleet just suffered through 16 yrs of draconian cuts and all was supposed to be good by now,what a bunch of uninformed freakin morons
