Wednesday, February 15, 2006 | San Diego is a Navy town, that’s for sure. Perhaps not as much as it once was, what with the diminished role of ships in our new modern war, but a Navy town it is nonetheless.

Sailors and ex-sailors are all over the place. If nothing else, the presence of retired old salts with all their nostalgia makes it a Navy town. And it doesn’t take much to get most of us going on sea stories.

Last week an old shipmate sent me a link.

Three people chided me for last week’s column where I said Alvin Toffler wrote “Brave New World.” Actually, Aldous Huxley wrote that book. Toffler’s book which I quoted was “Future Shock.” My apologies to Aldous and Alvin and shame on the rest of you for not catching it.
