Assorted Stuff for the Day

Okay, I don’t have a whole lot of time today. I’m leaving on business trip to the middle of nowhere (Cleburne, Texas) so I’m just going to post a couple of quick links to interesting news items.

First up, via Blackfive, is the story of an Army Captain who had his foot blown off in Iraq. He’s going back with 3d ACR as Commander of RHHT. I have an enormous amount of respect for this man. He has taken what is arguably the path of most resistance moving forward from his injury. Brave rifles!

Next up is commentary on Ward Churchill form a professor at the same university. Gee, academia apparently is as bad as some of us suspect. There’s a shock.

Finally, an article on the weird social stigma that attaches to being unmarried past a certain point. The article thinks the cutoff point is the mid-30s for women and the early 40s for men. I call bullshit. By the time you hit thirty, if you’ve never been married and aren’t in a relationship, you’re a freak. People will assume you’re either gay or have some other personal problem.
