USASOC remembers fallen heroes

I had to email my old team leader Doug Pallister and give him some grief for not letting me know he'd be at Bragg. Told him next time he dropped by I'd drive over and make fun of his grey hair (...and mine). I'm planning to take my son to Bragg next year and will definitely want to pay my respects a...

Home invader runs into home defender

Gotta love this former Marine. Good on him. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The sound of breaking glass wakes you in the dead of night. An intruder slips in and begins stalking around the house. There's no telephone in your bedroom, and you can't dia...

The 06 and I just got back last night from the Turks and Caicos Islands in the British West Indies. We were married there ten years ago and went back for the anniversary. If you've got kids, then the Beaches resort is the place to go. Plenty of activities for the kids and seriously all inclusive. No...

What about fucking water at $1.50 per 12 ounces???? Only $16 bucks a gallon...for something that's being bottled from a garden hose behind the Dasani plant! My wife and son think drinking tap water is like drinking out of the toilet. I can't convince them that it's the same stuff, just packaged pre...

The worst nuclear disaster in US history was 3 mile island. Not to hijack, but I flew out of Harrisburg last night. We took off right over the facility. (My son said that apparently TMI is the only reactor without restricted airspace...?) Have to admit it gave me a strange feeling to fly right over...

We are no longer the only folks on the block guzzling gas. The new market of China and India will use up every bit that we "conserve". A very good point. I've been amazed for years at our unwillingness to seriously invest in workable alterative energy sources. If we did run out of oil, in short ord...

So, how do you lower gas prices? Make more of it.
...or use less of it.

In '89 I got to make the jump in for the 45th anniversary. Many of the veterans were still going over. Standing there at the cemetery just back from the beach was amazing. The rows of crosses go on forever. Every time I meet a WWII veteran I always thank him for his service and tell him that I think...

Hit-and-run victim left in street without help

HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) -- A 78-year-old man is tossed like a rag doll by a hit-and-run driver and lies motionless on a busy city street as car after car goes by. Pedestrians gawk but appear to do nothing. One driver stops briefly but then pulls back into traffic. A man on a scooter slowly circle...

Energy fears looming, new survivalists prepare

BUSKIRK, N.Y. --A few years ago, Kathleen Breault was just another suburban grandma, driving countless hours every week, stopping for lunch at McDonald's, buying clothes at the mall, watching TV in the evenings. That was before Breault heard an author talk about the bleak future of the world's oil s...
