My command is subordinate to the Pacific Submarine force. Those guys are 6 hours behind us. When they get an itch they need to scratch, they don’t get their good ideas until about 1100 AM HST, 5:00 PM here in Virginia. So we spin and churn for three hours and they get some more good ideas. I’ve already shifted my working hours from 1000-1800, but 1000-2100 has been the norm.
@nickj: I guess I wasn’t clear about my post saying Frank Sinatra is worthy of consideration as greatest American male vocalist of the 20th century. He’s worthy of note because he’s a great vocalist, period. I only mentioned his commercial success and longevity as "filler" in that post, and that both are also noteworhy in their own right,.
i will throw Bob Dylan into this conversation. Before you guys groan about his grumbling vocals, I think it fits America perfectly in the 20th century. His voice is kinda dirty, not filtered and limited. Much of which can be said of America in the 20th century
