Happy Birthday . . .

. . . to the Iraqi Army! No, seriously, it's their 87th birthday today. As a special treat, I had prepared an interview with some of the "old-head" officers and Soldiers from the Saddam era to compare and contrast his army vs. the current army. It was a great plan, except for the fact that they all took off today. Great. No joke, I think it's quite possible they spend more days off than they do working. Oh well. Keep an eye for that interview, though, because I think it will be an interesting comparison.

In other news . . . I have no other news. Which is kind of a good thing here.

I worked at the Associated Press for a few years after I got out in 73. The inside joke there was:

If it's news, it's news to us.


Have a quiet day my Friend and scratch another day off your calendar.

Stay alert Jason. The OIF experience has been that spectacular events occur during deceptive periods of inactivity.
