Taken this morning(11/24) in Boca de Tamotlan where some fresh fish was bought. Interesting place with all kinds of little sidewalk places to grab something to eat.

Fine By Me

Maybe enough will quit that the pentagon can be drowned in the bathtub. Oh Happy Days!!

Male Marines listed being falsely accused of sexual harassment or assault as a top concern in a survey about moving women into combat jobs, and thousands indicated the change could prompt them to leave the service altogether.

  1. The grunts had the same complaints about blacks being allowed to serve in the same unit as whites. The orders came down to do it, and they made it work. That's a soldier's job -- to follow orders and make it happen. They did. The ones who couldn't followed orders, were cashiered. Given the number of Southerners in the ranks even back in the 1950's, that tells you something -- it tells you that Marines aren't the kind of fainting flowers who can't cope with integrated units, because to a Southern boy in the 1950, sleeping in the same foxhole as a nigger would have seemed as horrific as sleeping in a foxhole with a gay dude. Oh wait, they've made that work too. Heh.

    Hope everything's going well for you or at least better than here.

    Talk to you soon.

  3. Yes, well, I remember hearing tales of women soldiers not drinking water (in Iraq!) before bed so they wouldn't have to go pee in the night because their fellow male soldiers would follow them and rape them.

    Why would any woman declare this a victory?
