My sonís training cruise is very strange this year.

Its itinerary keeps changing. Neither the Russians nor the Chinese want to land the Golden Bear for CMA this summer. He is seeing both Korea and Japan more than once. The President of CMA is from MMA. Rats. I wonder if that has anything to do with that? Humor

Good one Bart! We were happy when Mr. I'msosmart decided to move to CMA.
Actually, the MMA training ship had a similar experience trying to visit Russia a few years back. The Russians thought it was a military vessel and didn't want it in thier port. I'm guessing the Chinese are the same way. Funny thing about those Communist Countries.

CMA is California Maritime Academy (where Bart's son is a cadet) and MMA is Maine Maritime Academy (which is better). The T/S Golden Bear is the name of CMA's training ship. MMA's training ship is the T/V State of Maine. A far superior vessel staffed with cadets who will make a marked improvement in the maritime community.

MMA had a disliked minor official who left MMA to become the president of CMA.

So now you have the whole story. Bart and I have a friendly little disagreement about which Maritime Academy is better.

Peter,

CMA enrollment is up to over 600. What is MMA?

By the way, I will inform my son of the President's nick name when he gets home.

The GOlden Bear is an ex-CIA spy ship. Those in Maine would not understand how to run it. Is the T/V State of Maine able to go on the ocean and does it have engines or is is sails only?
