    Quit pulling my leg so darn hard, dang it! Ouch!

    Kent,

    Next you'll tell me about those "strike the tents" events, but do they conflict with the "cross-over" and "they couldn't hit an elephant" events? :D

    History with humor. How about that?

    The truth comes out in the Men's Room

    While standing at the urinal one day, it was at that precise moment that I realized I either had to convert to an entirely different religion or face facts. :rolleyes:

    Another learning experience

    Another question is whether "route" in route step is pronounced "root" or "rowt." Never have seen that one successfully argued to a definitive answer.

    Are you saying Fremont, Banks, Sickles, Hooker, Van Dorn, Pryor, and Polk weren't great generals? :p

    Well, at least Polk's exit was final in so many ways.

    Can you provide specific examples? Otherwise, this sort of statement is another broadbrush load of glittering us vs them generalities. What attitudes? Which wedges? Who shot John?

    Shhh, don't say Utopianism too loud around here.

    Bean Triage, Not.

    Everybody, raise your hand if you have seen this epidsode of MASH. True, it was a can of beans and a stove in a Korean War setting, but the end result was similar.

    You thoughtfully mentioned this article earlier, and it is worth posting a link here: Right Shoulder Shift

    The link in your signature line has been very useful. Thank you.
