P.J. O’Rourke visits the USS Roosevelt

Posted by Rob Longenecker on April 19th, 2008

“Landing on an aircraft carrier was the most fun I’d ever had with my trousers on. And the 24 hours that I spent aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt–the “Big Stick”–were an equally unalloyed pleasure. I love big, moving machinery. And machinery doesn’t get any bigger, or more moving, than a U.S.-flagged nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that’s longer than the Empire State Building is tall and possesses four acres of flight deck. This four acres, if it were a nation, would have the fifth or sixth largest air force in the world–86 fixed wing aircraft plus helicopters.”

P.J. O’Rourke is a guy with a gift for reporting serious subjects with a touch of humor. He recently spent 24 hours with the men and women of the USS Roosevelt. As a former Naval Aviator with 2000 hours of jet time and 300 carrier landings, I’m still powerfully drawn to anything regarding these floating “bird farms” as they’re called.

Here’s a link to the story which also says some good things about John McCain in comparison to his dem rivals.

Thanks to the Weekly Standard and Lucianne.com for printing it.
