SSBN(X) as the Great White Whale.

on the CNO's testimony brings us up to speed on Admiral Greenert's top three priorities, the first of which is the OHIO Class Ballistic Missile Submarine replacement. I have alluded in this space before to my soft support of this program and my eventual desire to lay out why that would be. That rationale was to have been explored in a "Great Debate" in which I was to participate with my friend Bridge Colby in a few weeks, but the program sponsor was not able to achieve the institutional support he needed to stage the event, and what would have been a lively and (hopefully) informative debate will have to wait. Instead, I will use this space to make my argument. In order to manage your expectations, I would offer that a colleague recently referred to a less developed version of it as "fatuous" (adj. "silly and pointless") in a semi-public forum. So I've got that going for me.
