Re: A flight of fancy perhaps . . .
You know, Pat, the pundits can say what they will about battleships being obsolete, but I do think they still have a place in the scheme of things. The days of battleship to battleship combat are long gone, never to return, that is certainly true. But a high-explosive 16" shell weighing well over a ton still speaks as loudly as it ever did against inland targets.
