@SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) Wonder if we will ever really know what happened.

@engelbrad @LauraKinCA @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) We have all talked about this before on the site... maybe a bottom does have to be reached before they climb out and get back to quiet operators.

@BrandonWebb @LauraKinCA @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) I agree. I had hoped after the initial furor with Biss was over that it would calm down... then we get "The Shooter" thru Esquire and the shit storm started again.... thought that would die... and here we are again...

@SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) I think that is my biggest problem with this whole thing too... I feel like it's made a mockery of a great set of special operators and the historical importance of the event.

Like I told a friend who posted today about his grandfather winning the Silver Star in WWII, I bet that is only one of many reasons (the award) to be very proud of your grandfather, as you most definitely have many reasons to be very proud. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

For me it was a "happy" Veterans Day to spend some time with a group that's appreciative of our multiple generations of veterans and to honor their service and sacrifice at a local Veterans Day event. And then to come to the website and spend time with other like minded folks just makes it all the better.

I know it's a "cartoon" but I really like that image. Good job! Today was a good day remembering all the vets in my life and spending some time at a Veterans Day Memorial.

The Atlas Generation is a very good description for those who have stepped up to heed the call of our Nation, both in times of crisis and in relative peace. They shoulder great burdens. It's a very good feeling to see more recognition and appreciation for our veterans.

I went to another liberal bastion university (actually 2 - undergrad for one and grad for another) back in slightly freer times ... and except for the Naked Guy at the second and Hash Bash at the first, apparently I still missed out on that bit of ridiculousness. Chalk it up to dumb attention getters. Bet in 20 years there will be a few twinges of regret.

Saw a headline that the first nurse from Dallas is going home virus free now. Need to read up on that, but I remember that she received a blood transfusion from the other guy that was brought home with the virus. Maybe they will get a handle on treatments, then the threat will be less effective. Or at least the threat won't start a nation-wide panic.

@CameronMichaelPartlow  Very true in most larger universities. It's publish or perish there an many leave the actual teaching to the teaching assistants and focus on their research and research students.

One of my outstanding questions Charlie is whether regular TR members who have been members for at least a year before the Vegas party will still be invited or will it eventually go to the 300 group only?
