Friday's question of the day

Our last question asked: The USS Theodore Roosevelt had an unusual delay in Norfolk, Va. What delayed the aircraft carrier's departure by two days? A mysterious sea creature was clogging the Roosevelt’s seawater intake piping: a filter feeder known as Bryozoa.

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer yesterday's question!
