Status Report and more on Navy Sonar

We are still playing a recording of this season's whale songs.  Sea conditions did not allow a repair trip today, and work load demands will likely delay repairs until sometime Wednesday.  An article in today's Navy Times describes the tension between the Navy, the courts and environmental groups arguing for protection of the 26 some species of marine mammals in Hawai'i's waters.  I can't help thinking there has to be a solution that ensures safety of our fleet and nation, while protecting the ocean environment.  Technology, politics, diplomacy, arms control agreements can all play a part.  Any bright ideas out there?  Please comment.  Aloha, Dan
