Admiral Chester Nimitz | National Portrait Gallery

A ship is always referred to as “she” because it costs so much to keep one in paint and powder.”   —   Chester Nimitz

(Now, now, ladies!  No need getting your knickers all in a twist.  It’s just a little dated – yet still valid in my book – humor.  Please resist your urge to vandalize, or destroy, statues of the man.  He’s still an American hero . . . pretty much like all the others whose statues have been defaced, destroyed, or removed.  The United States is supposed to be a country of tolerance, not over zealousness.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
