What to Say...
In the meantime entertain yourself with thoughts about cavernous PX's with nothing worth buying in them...except for soft drinks, candy, chips and AAFES porn. You can have DVD copies of all the movies you've never heard of or thought you wanted to see...as all the good stuff is scooped up by FOB Locusts as soon as it hits the shelf...they must lie in wait with their own radio nets to scarf up this stuff so fast. If you aren't there when it's put out you're left with 50 DVD copies of "Green Acres"...ENJOY!
Saw this ARTICLE in the Weekly Standard written by Michael Yon about the difficulties facing reporters in getting to and reporting from Iraq...interesting stuff.
Frankly while I'm here I don't watch the news...I read the paper from time to time, but honestly I don't need the aggravation and my experience has been that the news usually gets it wrong. People back home need to hear what is REALLY going on, and both DOD and the media need to do a better job.
