The Navy appears to be engaged in a serious public-relations push, as the bloggers aboard the USS Kearsarge aren't the only ones reporting on life at sea. J.J. Green, the national security correspondent for WTOP News was a passenger for a week on the nuclear submarine USS Miami. His stories, including photos and audio reports, are available at the WTOP blog Hidden Hunter. It sounds like Green got a better deal than me. I had to pay $20 for three days of food when I left the Kearsarge, and his tab for a whole week was only $13. But then again, he was underwater the whole time. The bloggers aboard the Kearsarge were able to get fresh air, such as it is 100 miles or so from the East Coast in summer, whenever we wanted.
