A disturbing development

The Commissar has gotten his dirty commie paws on top-sekrit information about the probable closure of the Groton Submarine Base in Connecticut. As a local punk who spent many a day at the base commissary, I've got a vested interest in this fight, and have only one prediction:

BRAC will recommend its closure, the Defense Department will turn it over to Interior, Interior will turn it over to the Mashentucket Pequots, who will turn it into a nuclear submarine-themed casino and theme park.

Talk about your river boat gambling!

Then, in a mild mannered fashion, the Pequots will wait about six months before announcing that they've obtained nuclear weapons and want their own seat in the UN Security Council.

Far-fetched? Stranger things have been known to happen in good-old rotten to the core southeastern Connecticut.

Just remember, you heard it here first.
