There’s a rather exhaustive treament of this issue in Pete Peterson’s "Running On Empty" which I sent you a while back. As I recall, he painted a very dismal picture of the future of SS … beautifully documented. Did you get a chance to read it?


Haven’t read it yet, but I did pick up and read "Flyboys." Bradley doesn’t pull any punches, does he? I think I had the shakes for a few hours after finishing that book, and it was hard to get it out of my head for a few days.

By the way, there is someone in my meeting who served in the Navy as a corpsman with Bradley Sr. He says Bradley patched him up once. Interesting, and terrifying, stories.
