The informal group of knitters hopes to persuade the Navy not to use the animals from the 60-degree waters of San Diego in 46-degree Hood Canal.
The Navy announced a plan February 12th to use the dolphins and California sea lions to watch for terrorist swimmers at the Trident submarine base.
Opponents plan to show up with their knitting at public meetings March 27 in Keyport and March 28 in Seattle.
The Navy says the dolphins would only patrol in Hood Canal for two hours before returning to heated enclosures.
I guess you just can't make this stuff up...
They should knit richard socks for their spouces.
Dolphins wouldn't wear sweaters anyway. They're nudist.
Those sub pens are designed to withstand nuclear weapons - hydrogen bombs to be exact. What are terrorist frogmen going to do compared to nukes?
I don't know about you but if I were a terrorist and saw a dolphin wearing a Barney the Purple Dinosaur sweater I'd swim away as fast as I could.
I'd be more worried about the affect of pollution in Hood Canal on the dolphins than the cold water....Give them antibiotics before sweaters.
That group has gotta find another porpoise in life.
Probably just a bunch of crochety old moonbats...
Needling the knitters, are we?
Nah, I'd be more worried about the casino-American's netting them.
