I Am Ashamed
I will turn in my VRWC Secret Decoder Ring directly.
I just read a column by Donald Kaul. And (barring one sentence) I agreed with it.
I feel so dirty. Even the DevilDog refuses to hump my leg and just pisses on it instead.
Donnie today is having a giggle over Homeland Insecurity's web site, ready.gov, where graphics are displayed about what actions you should take in the event of a Nuclear Blast. One of those show a blast going off about half a city block from you, and it suggests that you go around the next corner.
Works for me I guess.
It also recommends that, should you have time, get in your car and get the hell outta Dodge. Great. Like gridlock isn't bad enough in normal circumstances.
Kaul's next section goes on to talk about how some folks are worried that, since we're now fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, we'd have real problems fighting on a third front if necessary. Of course, that also translates to a fourth front or fifth ... ...
He recommends that, until we can get the troop numbers up and we free some capital, we just have the future belligerents take a number and wait.
His closing quote? "In the meantime, we can all take comfort that we definitely will not be blown up by an airborne old lady with a nuclear bomb in her shoe."
