The Lombardi Sup

Yep, I like this coming from Annapolis.
The U.S. Naval Academy's new superintendent announced yesterday stricter rules for midshipmen, declaring that students at the Annapolis military academy need to spend more time preparing for war and less time on distracting extracurricular activities.

Students, who are returning to campus for Monday's start of the school year, will have reduced off-campus liberty hours, more mandatory study hours and more limited extracurricular activities, Vice Adm. Jeffrey L. Fowler told reporters.

"This is not just a college scholarship program," Fowler said during the interview in the superintendent's conference room. "My job is to make sure we minimize distraction."
VADM Fowler - impressive start. BZ from 'lil 'ole me.

Oh, I like the title of the article in The Capital;
"Academy to become more like military."
They also include something the WaPo left out.
"The taxpayers have paid money to develop officers here, and it's my job to ensure we minimize those distractions."

Hat tip You-know-who-you-are.
