Captains to be Moved
And what was our brave and noble command staff doing while the media finally reported the fall of the lakefront and the murders of three honor students down the street from Rainbow Beach? They were getting ready to empty out the ranks of Captain via bad decision making!

This meeting is going on as I'm typing around 1430 hours. A decision has been made to move all the second watch captains to first and third watches for "increased presence."
Dugan is having a coronary. Expect many captains to hit the medical or leave altogether.
"Increased presence?" What the hell is a single captain going to do that a third watch lieutenant can't accomplish? It certainly looks as if J-Fled and Shortshanks are determined to whittle down the ranks of captain for some reason. Supposedly we're short 15 captains and instead of promoting, the Department would rather be short another dozen or more? Amazing.
