  2. Karma's a b**ch, isn't it?

    What's that old '60's song, with the refrain, "Sha-na-na-na-sha-na-na-na-sha-na-na-na-goodbye..." Don't let the door hit you on the busboy on your way out the door. Discriminatory, unpatriotic,...

    They're both green, ain't they?

    Been away for a while - it's nice to see you made it over to the dark side, Lt. (Dang, that sounds weird - I remember when you were a LCpl.!)

    How many stars?

    I should know this but I just want to double-check:

    I have a second SMCR (first one in 2004, second award in 2007.) Star for each subsequent award.

    Actually, invoking eminent domain is NOT unconstitutional. Look it up.
