I attended a community meeting on Saturday. I sat in the front/middle because there were a lot of hard feelings and I wanted to be in the splash zone if things got nasty. What’s wrong with that?

I wouldn’t want to go to war in a Sea Vixen. Neither would I wish to take one supersonic. The British Admiralty had a similar take on it:
