Snaps from The Mogollon

LL at Virtual Mirage - 19 hours ago
Blue Ridge Reservoir is located about six miles as the crow flies from the White Wolf Mine. Here are a few pictures. It looks more like a river than a lake as it snakes through the high country. Boats are limited to 10 HP. Or if you prefer, the canoe. It's all good. Fish varieties include rainbow, brown, brook trout, and largemouth bass. The lake is deep and it's a perfect place to run out the pop gear in search of a lunker. There are other lakes in the area, but Blue Ridge is the closest. Sunset and moon rise sometimes occur at the same time. It makes for an interesting evening.... more »

Russia's 85,000 Ton Aircraft Carrier Was an Unrealized Monster

Paul Richard Huard at The National Interest - 19 hours ago

World War III? Could China's New Missiles Sink a U.S. Aircraft Carrier?

James Holmes at The National Interest - 19 hours ago

Under a concept dubbed “distributed lethality,” naval officialdom wants to disperse firepower throughout the fleet while retaining the capacity to concentrate firepower on target. What that means in practical terms is arming more ships with antiship missiles, supplemented by gee-whiz technologies like electromagnetic railguns and shipboard lasers should they fulfill their promise.​* Ah, yes, the “carrier-killer.” China ... more »

David Gelernter is one of a small number of people in the world whom I would characterize as a genuine independent thinker.
