That body you sailors just saw swinging from the yard-arm, is that of a Navy rear admiral, fired in the wake of the over-blown, BAD TASTE video that was shown on closed-circuit on the USS Enterprise.

Capt. Owen Honors has seen his career sunk. He was the "producer" of the non-X-rated but still risqué program. Now, ADM Ron Horton, commander of Logistics Group, Western Pacific, has joined the casualty list.

The 1982 Naval Academy graduate and top-rated aviator was skipper of the Enterprise during part of the time Honors, then the XO of CVN - 65, was putting out his tongue-in-cheek program. Horn was fired by his boss, Pacific Fleet commander, ADM Patrick Walsh, for "not providing adequate oversight and guidance to his crew" when the 51 year-old ex-fighter-pilot was the carrier's captain between May 2007 and May 2010.

LOOKING FOR SCAPEGOATS

The controversial video aired internally on the flat-top for at least six months while Horton was skipper.

Horton, former XO of the USS Abraham Lincoln, is not the only senior officer to get caught up in the Navy's latest obsession with political correctness. Two former executive officers of the Enterprise will find "bad paper" in their file as punishment for their participation in what was a harmless but half-witted idea.

Getting across info to the crew via humor is one thing. Even if you warn folks to "tune out" ahead of time in case they might be "offended," it is no justification for giving the brass hats rope to hang you with. They can fashion a noose in a nanosecond.

We have seen the closed-circuit program in its entirety, and have to admit it is sophomoric, stupid and self-defeating. But we feel ending the career of an outstanding officer like Honors is going overboard. A letter of admonition should have been enough. He knows now he will never make admiral.

DOUBLE-STANDARD OF JUSTICE
WHEN IT COMES TO "HORRIBLE HOLLY GRAF"

Too bad the Navy didn't do more to punish "HORRIBLE Holly Graf," the screaming, throat-grabbing shrew that got off easy at a recent retention-board hearing in Washington. It's true we helped prevent her from ever making flag rank, like her powerful "big sister" Robin, but many in the Fleet were enraged that the idol of man-hating lesbians everywhere, didn't lose at least one stripe for her most egregious misconduct.

Physically assaulting junior officers, especially a lieutenant of the Royal Navy aboard the USS Winston Churchill, should have gotten her put out of the service long ago. Now, the female "Captain Bligh" is still sucking up 0-6 pay and being her usual nasty and belligerent self in Virginia, while appealing the board's decision to retire her as a captain.

That fact isn't lost on Capt. Honors, who is fighting to salvage what is left of his Naval career. But bets are, he will be sacrificed to the "PC" altar and retire soon, while people like Graf continue to get a free pass.
