#1 he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"

Got to lay off that MSNBC, dude.

#2 You have to really dig into these. This is a highly unusual act, which must have happened for a highly unusual reason. But the media will never tell you. Don't want anyone asking questions.

#4 Would love to know where he's getting these ideas, and if he has a history of mental illness.

#5 Any conspiracy crackpot site will do, Rob. I see way to many people freaking out that FEMA camps under DIA are coming true.

#12 In other SoCal weirdness news, there were lots of flares off SD Tuesday evening. Hadn't noticed any in months, but suddenly, there they were, in the usual ones and twos, and finally six in a line. Pretty sure it was a coded message to head down to the beach and shoot at Chinese submarines. In any case, the Daily Schlocker reports (h/t Drudge) mass mystification, even consternation, all the way from Tijuana to Laguna Beach. Shirley, we're doomed!

#13 There is an old-timey naval proverb that "A ship is a fool that fights a fort". I don't know any about trains vs ships, so I think we're in uncharted waters here.

#14 On a personal note, I was the last plane tooth out at my dentist the other day, and I haven't heard "Wreck of the Old 97" since. Yay.

#17 ^ Bring it on, sez I. Might as well happen while I'm here to see it and as prepped as I'll ever be. Sadly, though, I'm now leaning toward teh "distress signals from indisposed sailors" theory.

#20 Re #18, you didn't miss a thing, boss. Just flares. Training? Smugglers? No clue.
