Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

Thousands of Christians Displaced in Ethiopia After Muslim Extremists Torch Churches, Homes

Not much for the 'religion of peace'.

This blog is designed to enthusiastically support naval history and naval current events. 

We will rarely divert from that mission - this is an article where I will divert from the mission.  Read it - and call your senator.  We go to war for freedom in Libya, but not in Ethiopia??  One oppression is worth defending, but not the other?  This - in a word - sucks.
