    GO NAVY!!!!!!!
    A US Navy cruiser anchored in Mississippi for a week's shore leave.
    The first evening, the ship's Captain received the following note from the
    wife of a wealthy plantation owner.

    "Dear Captain,

    Thursday will be my daughter Melinda's Debutante Ball.
    I would like you to send four well-mannered, handsome, unmarried
    officers in their formal dress uniforms to attend the dance.

    They should arrive promptly at 8:00 PM prepared for an evening of
    polite Southern conversation.

    They should be excellent dancers, as they will be the escorts of
    lovely refined young ladies.

    One last point: No Jews please."

    Sending a written message by his own yeoman, the captain replied:

    Madam, thank you for your invitation.

    In order to present the widest possible knowledge base for polite
    conversation, I am sending four of my best and most prized officers.

    One is a lieutenant commander, and a graduate of Annapolis with an
    additional Masters degree from MIT in fluid technologies and ship design.

    The second is a Lieutenant, one of our helicopter pilots, and a graduate
    of Northwestern University in Chicago, with a BS in Aeronautical Engineering.
    His Masters Degree and PhD. In Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering
    are from Texas Tech University and he is also an astronaut candidate.

    The third officer is also a lieutenant, with degrees in both computer
    systems and information technology from SMU and he is awaiting
    notification on his Doctoral Dissertation from Cal Tech.

    Finally, the fourth officer, also a lieutenant commander, is our ship's
    doctor, with an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia
    and his medical degree is from the University of North Carolina. We are
    very proud of him, as he is also a senior fellow in Trauma Surgery at

    Upon receiving this letter, Melinda's mother was quite excited and
    looked forward to Thursday with pleasure.

    Her daughter would be escorted by four handsome naval officers without
    peer (and the other women in her social circle would be insanely jealous).

    At precisely 8:00 PM on Thursday, Melinda's mother heard a polite rap
    at the door which she opened to find, in full dress uniform, four
    handsome, smiling black officers.

    Her mouth fell open, but pulling herself together, she stammered,
    "There must be some mistake."

    "No, Madam," said the first officer.

    "CaptainGoldbergnever makes mistakes."
