1. We had 2 days of sleet, rain, and snow. There was some lightning and hail in there, too. What a nice feeling when I woke up for watch before noon and saw the sun for the first time in I don't know how many days.

2. I know I've been writing about food too much, but today, with a 12-hour gap between loading cargo and discharge, I threw together some stuffed peppers for 2:

What a shock to discover that I missed Wednesday, being Prince spaghetti day. I really have no idea what day it is most of the time I'm out here.

3. There's an awful lot of silence coming from the media about the President's decision to bomb Libya without informing Congress first. I'm no constitutional scholar, but doesn't he have to do that first?

I'm surprised you haven't been hearing the questions about the president's constitutional authority. There is a lot of discussion taking place, with even one or two members of Congress spouting off on impeachment.

Without getting into a debate, there are different ways the war powers act can be interpreted. Some may argue that he is still within those guidelines.

Though I haven't heard this said by anyone in the administration, some members of Congress were supposively consulted. It may be that those speaking out against the president may be those who feel slighted by not being consulted.

Keep listening, the issue is not dead.
