A FOAF of mine is former military brass, now in an allied industry.  FWIW,
he says industry and the military muckety-mucks are watching their budgets a
bit nervously, since they dislike V.P.-elect Cheney, who they feel screwed
them during his stint as Secretary of Defense.  (His past opposition to the
Marine's jump-jet program -- or crash-jet program, given the performance of
the plane -- has been in the news lately.)
