How about a premture gray-haired person of the non-male persuasion wearing Birkenstocks and slinging a nuclear-tipped Tomahawk missile?

AS an ex-submariner, this is very cool. a fast attack sub named after the state.

I've always thought that walleyes with their glowing white eyes and snaggly teeth looked pretty badass in underwater photography. They'bve got that deep sea horror fish look while still being beautiful.

How about a "cartoon Tax payer with pants pockets pulled insideout and palms to the sky shrugging with a exasperated as the facial expression"...

For those who don't know, SSN indicates it is a fast attack. As an ex-submariner, I like the idea regardless what class it is. I would love to see one of the entries be consistent with designs of WWII. I look forward to seeing the entries posted by the star trib.

Ah, Mr. Mr. Brunswick, what is she, a fast attack SSN or a ballistic SSBN? Since the article implies she can operate in the littorals I presume she is an attack sub. More information would have been nice.
