Worth More Dead Than Alive?

Isn’t that the old plot line from murder mysteries and black comedies, where the poor sad sack working husband’s life insurance policy makes him worth more to his two-timing wife if he’s dead?

Life imitates art, according to WeaponsMan.

Even if his calculations are off, the underlying idea is right on the money. The thing is waste of time and money. Stop building them, and scrap the ones we have.

I wonder what the incoming POTUS and his SecDef will have to say?

    What’s a “Navy?” Is that like a “combined arms” and “victory?” Strange new words in this era of Trumpismo…
