A frightening item in the Los Angeles Times this week concerning the United States Navy's recent "laser ray gun" test off the California coast. Aimed at a small motorboat, the craft burned up before it could it sink.

According to Rear Admiral Nevin Carr, "This is very important to the navy's future weapon systems." Clearly. But this is the line that haunts me: "By turning energy into a weapon, we become more efficient."
