Submarine Questions of the Week - 4 JUNE 2015
BACKGROUNDBeware of sources who correct their errors without notice, which is only slightly more responsible than never acknowledging errors. Redundancy of error can be a publishing nightmare. No source, no matter how reliable, is immune from error.
In answers to our 2008 Submarine Questions of the Week, we relied on a reputable navy source without double checking. We will not name the original source, and we take our responsibility for misleading anyone.
Our error: "The king from a country without a navy embarked in a nuclear submarine."
QUESTIONS of the WEEK
1. How could we have known, contrary to the caption in the photo (above), that USS Sargo (SSN-583) did not embark a king on a cruise around Oahu as planned and publicized?
2. Our second question had asked, "What was the name of this king with no navy?
Our answer was: King Mahendra of Nepal. Was that answer correct?
3. Identify a related source of misleading information about the subject king.
ANSWERS Tommorow: 5 JUNE 15
