    Has to be deceased to have a ship named after him/her.

    It was a joke. Al Gore predicted the possibility of a complete lack of summer sea ice in the Arctic as early as 2013 in an "Inconvenient Truth", hence the need not to build any ice breakers.

    Not true for USN commissioned ships, such as USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH, commissioned in 2009. It’s usually the case, but not always. I’d be interested to know if CG naming protocol differs.

    Yes, different for the Coast Guard. I think the info is in the public affairs manual.

    WiFi/house power were out for a while last night, so there were delayed launches, I think.
