Another wild day

in the training-for-the-new-job pipeline.  I think we've all given each other classes now, and although we had a fairly long day on weapons training, I think we may be doing more of that today.

Just as soon as this position gets interesting, or at least when I get my dog back, I should have something less stupifyingly dull to post about.

Watching the world go by

Soldiers from the 82nd Airborne lifted off last week to ride to the rescue in Haiti, and my comrades and I stood below and watched the plane climb past us.

The voters in Massachusetts went to the polls today and made a pretty clear statement that while they were all about change, they were maybe not so sure about the current change in Washington.

There are times when one feels as though the things one is doing are vitally important, and times when, at least from my perspective, all one can do is switch on CNN and watch interesting things happen.  It's been one of those weeks.
