    That sound like more of a retronym. The military is good at that. All the clever wags in the program office think of candidate phrases for the program title.

    A good comparison would be the “Robber Barons” on the Rhine River in centuries past, who would place barricades across the river to block any traffic until each vessel paid tolls. And there were dozens of such petty nobles doing this, each with their separate barricade. It eventually got so bad that the Rhine stopped being a viable route for shipping. That is what happens when there are too many unregulated fingers in a single pie.
    In short, we don’t want lots of small road-owners each placing their own fees such that we have to pay a hundred charges in order to cross the country. Instead, we would want nation-spanning “Road Corporations”, akin to rail or air travel, where you could cross the continent on a single company’s system, while having the choice between a few competing systems for reaching most major destinations. Of course, that brings on the same sort of regulatory issues that apply to railroads.

    Sadly, a huge chunk of people have made it a part of their ideological identity to be against anything that their opponents are for—if anything is “woke” or “socialist”, then they will oppose it, no matter how much it might otherwise benefit them personally to support it. This is where we get people who are on Social Security and Medicare who vote to reduce their own benefits.

    My favorite episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks has two of the ensigns retrieving a Catian (Cat person) ancient heirloom fertility object (scratching post) for the Catian chief medical officer. After the entire episode of numerous hazards and narrow escapes, they return home with the object ... destroyed. No problem. The doctor tosses the contents. She only wanted the box. (She immediately plays in it.)

    Noah being happy with being adopted by Raven tells Diane that Raven is capable of being a decent father figure. The question now is of whether he could be a father figure for Diane. She may even on some level be imagining what life might have been like if Raven had raised her.

    Well, the classic definition of insanity is to keep trying the same thing while expecting different results, so by that standard, he is doing the only sane thing.

    Which was based badly on his experience with what it created. Being a statue for hundreds of years can do that too you, put you out of touch with what is going on around you. I dare say even someone more recent, such as our founding fathers or Abraham Lincoln, would misconstrue much of what they saw going on around them if they came out of one of their statues today. Lincoln, for example, might say "Damn, I'm tall!" if he came out of his seated statue in his memorial, but he would totally miss his opportunity to be a star basketball player, at least initially.

    I seem to be over most of my COVID symptoms other than a sore throat and an occasional cough. Hopefully I can get over this in a few days.
