Hula Skirts Are Flammable

Unlikely to hit the news, but there was a fire on the USS OHIO on Saturday. Sailor Boy called at 1:00 a.m. Sunday to tell me he was OK--and that woke me up immediately since any late night call from SB saying he's "OK" means there's a much bigger back story.

Seems a motor caught fire in the ventilation system, highly ironically, during a fire drill; so they had to cancel the drill and have the real thing. Fortunately, they were at dockside and not underwater.

Of course, it could be a cover story for someone accidently setting their hula skirt on fire. Or maybe not.
