Quote of the Day

Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be.  Also understand that the sheepdog is a funny critter; he is sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night and yearning for a righteous battle.

That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle.  The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed right away along with the young ones. ~ LtCol Dave Grossman.

Update:  Chris Norman is now officially one of my heroes.  From one pudgy, middle-aged, glasses wearing geek to another, Mr. Norman -- I salute you!

Read today that the gunman claimed he was unemployed and hungry, and was just going to steal some money so he could buy food. One of the Americans replied, "You don't need eight clips of ammo to rob a train". Never mind that AK-7, which the gunman claimed he "found". NOBODY leaves something of that sort lying around. Gimme a break!
