This reminds us of a story...
It was a dark and stormy night. A mighty U.S. Navy battleship was pushing through gale force winds in unfamiliar water. Suddenly a young Ensign noticed a flashing light dead ahead, pulsing in Morse Code... "TURN TO STARBOARD IMMEDIATELY!" Hearing of the message the Admiral aboard shouted down to the Ensign "...Signal that SOB to turn to Port Immediately!
The message was sent, but a reply came back instantly "....REPEAT! TURN STARBOARD IMMEDIATELY!"
Now really irritated, the Admiral barked for the following message "I AM FLEET ADMIRAL JONATHAN EDWARD HAYNESWORTH U.S. NAVY AND THIS IS AN IOWA CLASS BATTLESHIP. TURN TO PORT AS ORDERED.".
But a message flickered back "I AM 4TH CLASS SEAMAN BILLY GENE DOAKS U.S. COAST GUARD AND THIS IS A LIGHT HOUSE.
