Women in subs

There's a brief little news item today announcing that the Pentagon has decided to allow women to work on Navy submarines, which I hadn't realized was something they couldn't do already. With all the attention Don't Ask Don't Tell has gotten lately, I sometimes forget about the tons of military jobs that women still aren't allowed to do (though as the Times reported last summer, they're increasingly doing those jobs anyway.)

So now that men and women can serve together on submarines (party sub!) and considering that Don't Ask Don't Tell's days are numbered, I can imagine one glorious day when there are gay and straight men and women all crammed in together on a submarine.

I'm pitching the sitcom! It will be like "How I Met Your Mother" meets "Glee". On a sub.

Adding a few ladies to the cast is really going to spice up the new season of "All Hands on Dex."

Also, I wouldn't mind a show about the headstrong Capt. Dominica Smith - 1st female ever to captain a submarine - and her crew of eager young sailors. 'Sub & Dom', tonight on CBS.
