BTW, thank you for doing this. Trying to get karma up from "good" to "excellent" to get that swanky posting bonus... :-)

Well that last post and the resulting +4 mods finally let me hit Excellent karma. It's only taken me what, 5 years?

Considering some people get Excellent karma their first week on Slashdot I guess I'm not the hugest hosebag in the world. I will now click the "No Karma Bonus" checkbox for the firs time in my life, yipee!

Thanks again TMF!

Ugh, okay I heard the Richard Cohen article read on-the-air yesterday where Cohen describes how he intentionally defrauded (not his words) this National Guard system by moving frequently and requesting transfers to new States.

Oddly, the original story in the Washington Post [washingtonpost.com] is not loading right now and seems to be the only item I have tried to go to on the website that will not load.

Here is a blurb in one of the papers that quoted the article:

[stuff.co.nz]

But Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, writing of his own Guard service, said: "For two years or so, I played a perfectly legal form of hooky. To show you what a mess the Guard was at the time, I even got paid for all the meetings I missed."


Common Dreams has a a printer friendly link [washingtonpost.com] , that somehow does not load right now either.

So, we have a fellow publicly confessing to multiple felonies, but no investigation? Not even a demand by the press for an investigation? Amazing!

No, folks, when a member of the press confesses in print he is not given a blanket 2nd Amendment immunity from prosecution. This guy is a thief who needs to be prosecuted.

can if you want, I walked away from my computer and forgot I was in your journal rather than mine and pasted the story here. an entry by FortKnox indicates that you can mod your own journal when you have points.

sorry for tossing it in here
