I knew this was coming.  I am angered at how the government broke its
promiseto the Ada community.  We accepted the no-mandate BS providing an
was maintained with $15M budget.  It sure doesn't feel very good being
by DISA.  I hope the next tank or airplane that gets built using C++

should have been using Ada all along.  May those who caused the AJPO to
grow like onions with their head in the ground and their feet in the
