traditions, customs, and courtestys will always be a part of a profession or service...and it is what seperates us from the rest. now, if some admiral wants his favorite song played at 3 in the morning...its part of his privlage and somewhat part of our misery, but i wouldnt think it was a custom nor a a tradition would be to paint FTN on the wall behind that admirals podium while he was giving their going away speech....

For those that forgot...FTN means F@*K the Navy!
