Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Navy Quarterback Charged With Rape

From CNN:

Lamar Owens, the quarterback and most valuable player of Navy's 2005 football squad, has been charged with raping a female midshipman in her dormitory room, the academy announced Wednesday.
Since the alleged attack last month occurred on academy grounds, Owens was charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and the investigation is being handled by the Naval Criminal Investigation Service, Gibbons said.
An Article 32 hearing, similar to a civilian grand jury inquiry, will be held to determine if there is sufficient evidence to go ahead with the case, he said.

TV series aside, most Naval Officers don't hold NCIS in very high regard, so I hope they don't botch this or there'll be hell to pay.
