Cindy Sheehan has a secret

Good afternoon ladies and gents, I hope you are all having a great day. I have been surfing the net trying to find the truth about Cindy Sheehan's politics. Since this past summer she has been all over the media with her story of her son Casey who was killed by Iraqi terrorists working for Shia cleric and well known rotund dimwit Moqtada Al-Sadr. Casey as we all know by now was an American hero who reenlisted in Iraq and volunteered to go on the mission that killed him. His mother has been waging her own personal jihad against George W. Bush since Casey's death. A bereaved mother is allowed her grief and an American citizen is allowed to protest. Both of those things are sacrosanct to Americans. But, when a woman uses her son's death to advance her own political agenda, that is not a right, that is disgusting and most be fought at every turn.

What people don't know about Cindy Sheehan is that she openly sides with and allows herself to be photographed with people that have pledged solidarity with Iraqi insurgents. Not only photographed with them, but aiding their causes and giving speeches for them with no shame for who they are and what they stand for.

Whoever am I talking about? Well the Revolutionary Communist Party of course. The Revolutionary Communist Party is dedicated to a violent proletarian revolution in the U.S. and the establishment of a People's Republic. These are Maoists, as in Mao Tse Tung, as in the greatest mass murderer in the 20th century, Mao killed more innocents than Stalin and Hitler put together. According to one site Mao killed between 40-72 million people, and these are the people Cindy Sheehan calls allies.

These people trash the U.S. military, their website claims 9/11 was an inside job and they have a plan to drive out the Bush White House. So the RCP is a party dedicated to overthrowing the legally elected government of this country by violence if possible and that seeks to attack our military while they are fighting a war by giving aid and comfort to the enemy. And these are Cindy Sheehan's friends, at the rally in the pictures Cindy Sheehan had the following to say.

The people that are being killed in Iraq are not terrorists. They're citizens of Iraq, they're members of the human race. They're our brothers and sisters. And last year, I worked really hard to defeat George Bush. But you know what? He refuses to be defeated, because if he loses, he cheats. And so he cheated himself into a second term. And I wrote a letter on April -- I mean November 4th. You know, I took a day off -- I was very devastated, very depressed....

So the people that kill children asking for candy are not terrorists, the people that rape and kill women for trying to vote are not terrorists, and the people that killed her son are not terrorists? WOW HOLY FRICKING CHRIST IN A GOLF CART THIS WOMAN IS FLAT OUT INSANE. But even worse knowing all of this I'm not supposed to call Cindy Sheehan a traitor, I'm supposed to play the role where I respect her grief, only thing is her grief is being used to attack all that I love about this country. Well folks, those days are over. I'm calling a spade a spade, Cindy Sheehan is a traitor to America, her son Casey was a hero to us all. It sickens me that our sycophantic media has latched on to a Maoist (or at least someone who has no problem being associated with Maoists) and tried to present her as Betty Fricking Crocker of Middle America. She is a radical that has no qualms whatsoever about allying herself with people who cheer on the people who murdered her son and 2100+ other American heroes. How pathetic is our media when they side with communists that are also terrorist activists over those fighting to keep us safe. So I'm asking any bloggers that want to, call Cindy what she is. Only when Middle America rises up and says enough is enough will those who seek to harm our soldiers in thought and deed be repelled. Enough is enough!

P.S. In case there is any dispute over Mother Sheehan's political leanings, here are the photos of those who attended the rally. Thanks Zombietime, you are a warrior for us.

A blog to watch

For anyone interested in animals there is a new blog out there for you Animal Intelligence. It's written by my wife the awesome Janimal. Now before anyone starts rolling their eyes over an animal intelligence blog, let me tell me she is a true renaissance woman, she is a veteran, and a Bush supporter. She has a red hot dislike for PETA and other fringe groups that exploit animals for their own purposes. She'll eat a steak with the best of them and in the words of a Texas good ole boy, she ain't no tree hugging, granola eating, hippie. So check it out if you have the time, but beware she is passionate about her beliefs.

The trolls pop up and the trolls get shot down

Well it seems those crazy folks at Democratic Underground have decided they don't like me exposing them for the vermin they are and so they are sending trolls at me to spam my comments section. That's cool, I can hang. I even saw an appearance by my family member troll. Since her only reason to come here is disruption, she was banned again. If she comes back with her negative attitude we will do a full range IP ban and if the problem persists, ISP's will get involved. This site is for me and my views, all opinions are welcome and will always be tolerated. That being said outright harassment or posting only to flame me will not be tolerated. We can discuss anything rationally, I have several liberals that comment frequently that I get along with and we have disagreements but are still civil to one another. Act like an adult and follow my rules and you'll do just fine. If not out comes the ban stick and away you go.

A picture says a thousand words

This is priceless, known antiwar activist, bereaved mother, and known batshit insane leftist Cindy Sheehan was photographed in Crawford, Texas at a book signing for her book. Unfortunately it seems not many people want to have her autograph, nor waste their time listening to her rants.

Cindy all alone

What a disgrace

This week, we have seen the Democratic Party engage in treachery most severe. We have seen them hew and haw for months that we need to get out of Iraq and then back off from that statement. They advance and retreat this theme whenever they want to get the media headlines back under their control. This week, a respected Democratic House member call for a withdrawal from Iraq, the Republican party asked the democrats to put their money where there mouth was and vote for withdrawal and the dems refused. In fact the man that called for withdrawal, Jack Murtha voted against withdrawal himself. The Democratic party tried to claim this was a cheap political stunt, my question is what is cheaper; To say one thing and then do another or to actually be forced to put your opinion on the record and have our fighting forces judge you as the cowards that you are. Furthermore, what does this mixed message send to my friends, to me and to the hundreds of thousands of other Americans who have fought and still are fighting around the world to rid us all of the evil of our time?

Non-military members will never understand, soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines live to serve this nation. They spend every minute of everyday in service to something greater than themselves. They honestly believe they are fighting for a better America, and a better world. What must they think when they see the antics of the democratic party? I'll tell you what they think, most soldiers feel betrayed, they feel that our country is turning against them and nothing will destroy a soldier more than for him or her to believe their country is against them. I rarely swear or lose my temper, but today I have, so bear that in mind when you read the following.

It's a fucking disgrace that one political party would betray our fighting forces in the middle of a war. When you are in a war, you fight to win, you fight to destroy the enemy, you fight and you kill and you bring maximum violence to your enemies, because that violence will bring you home to that which you hold most dear. As a veteran of this war, I know one thing, that the way home lies in the destruction of as much evil as possible.

Now we have elected leaders doing their damnedest to poison the relationship between the military and the country. It's poison to let soldiers think they are unappreciated, it's poison to let wounded veterans believe the war was wrong, they have given blood and bone for God's sake. A very piece of themselves has been destroyed forever to make us all safer and yet we have elected leaders of one party who wish to take a shit all over that sacrifice. Soldiers want nothing more than to be loved by their country, for their country to love them as much as they love it. They believe in the notions of honor, sacrifice and above all else love. The love military members have for this country allows them to get up every day for a year and go out and face evil. Day after day after day, they wake up, put on pounds and pounds of heavy, stifling gear, pick up their weapons and go forward to find, fix and kill an enemy that is so vile, so utterly disgusting, it will viciously kill children playing with toys or rape women doing nothing more than trying to teach people how to vote. This is what we are fighting to destroy, this is the evil that exists in the world, this is the force responsible for 2100+ dead American men and women, and yet we have a political party in our country that wants to "bring the boys home", to yank them away from that fight, to retreat in the face of evil and give evil a victory over free peoples. How dare they, how dare the Democratic party betray those fighting for us. I am a good Christian and I'm not supposed to judge, but in this case I believe I must. The Democratic Party of today is on the cusp of betrayal of America's military, ironically for the second time in my lifetime. They are not for the troops, if they were for the troops, they would be advocating victory, not withdrawal. Victory and this nation are what soldiers fight for, they don't fight for withdrawal schedules or vote getting strategies. Soldiers on the ground more than members of Congress understand the evil they are fighting, and now those same men and women in uniform are forced to listen to a debate that has been generated by fringe groups that hate this country and are using one political party to achieve defeat. What a disgrace that the military is getting criticisms from a fat slovenly coward of a filmaker from Flint, Michigan and a psychotic bereaved mother of a dead soldier that has sold her soul to Anti-American organizations. What a disgrace that the members of one political party elected to lead us are cowards, unwilling to finish this fight. What a disgrace that these leaders would sacrifice the morale and esprit de corps of our military to gain political points. What a disgrace to continuously call for the withdrawal of our troops and then when forced to vote for that idea, to reject it en masse. What a disgrace that our men and women in uniform must watch from 7,000 miles away as one party in our government works to destroy all that they have fought, bled, and died for.

I am ashamed that I voted for a democrat at age 18, I am ashamed that nearly half this country would vote for cowards such as these, I am most ashamed at what this cowardice does to our fighting forces, nothing will destroy their morale faster than the belief that this country does not believe in their mission. The cowardice of the democratic party will echo and reverberate within the ranks of the military causing doubt and depression to replace confidence and the belief that our mission is just. What a disgrace.

More proof not all cultures are equal

From time to time, one will hear an argument that all cultures are equal and we as americans shouldn't judge another culture for the actions its members engage in. And to shut naive little fools like that up, I usually post something like this.

A village council in Pakistan has decreed that five young women should be abducted, raped or killed for refusing to honour childhood "marriages".

So begins an article in today's Telegraph a British daily. Read it for yourself and tell me again that all cultures are equal and we shouldn't judge.

Dueling views on Iraq

When people ask me about Iraq, I make sure to list the good with the bad. I tell them about the inspiring feeling of having seen people striving to have their voices heard, I talk about the loss and absolute emptiness that comes over you when you lose a friend in combat. I talk about the thanks the Iraqi people give American forces and I talk about the people that just want us to leave. The point is I try to paint a fair and balanced picture. In most of the reporting about this war, there seem to be two competing schools of thought. The Pro-Victory side tells about all the good going on in Iraq while acknowledging the mistakes that have been made as well as mourning the losses we and the Iraqi people have suffered. The Anti-War wing seems to be in love with the idea that nothing is going right, that Iraq is a quagmire that is destroying our military and that we are losing badly.

So with that in mind I came across the following two letters, both from Ramadi in Al Anbar province. One is from the Washington Times and it is an account of a father explaining what his son went through in Ramadi as a Marine. The father recounts through the son's words how our weapons are faring over there, how our tactics are working and what the enemy is doing to counter it. He also describes who the Marines believe they are fighting and the success they think they are having. He also highlights what isn't working for our forces and does so in an honest way. Here are a few of the quotes both good and bad:

The M-16 rifle: Thumbs down. Chronic jamming problems with the sand over there, which is like talcum powder. The sand is everywhere. You feel filthy two minutes after a shower. The M-4 carbine version is more popular because it's lighter and shorter, but it also has jamming problems. Marines like the ability to mount the various optical gunsights and weapons lights on the picatinny rails, but the weapon itself is not great in a desert environment. They all hate the 5.56mm (.223) round. Poor penetration on the cinderblock structure common over there and even torso hits cannot be reliably counted on to put the enemy down

The M2 .50 cal heavy machine gun: Thumbs way, way up. "Ma deuce" is still worth her considerable weight in gold. The ultimate fight-stopper, puts their d**** in the dirt every time. The most coveted weapon in-theater

The M243 SAW (squad assault weapon) .223 cal: Big thumbs down. Drum-fed light machine gun. Universally considered a piece of s***. Chronic jamming problems, most of which require partial disassembly. That's fun in the middle of a firefight

The new body armor: Thumbs up. Relatively light at approximately six pounds and can reliably be expected to soak up small shrapnel and even stop an AK-47 round. The bad news: Hot as s*** to wear, almost unbearable in the summer heat, which averages over 120 degrees. Also, the enemy now goes for head shots whenever possible. All the bull**** about the "old" body armor making our guys vulnerable to improvised-explosive devices was a non-starter. The IED explosions are enormous and body armor doesn't make any difference at all in most cases

Next it is discussed who we are fighting, how the insurgents fight, and how we are doing, again a few quotes:

Who are the bad guys? Most of the carnage is caused by the Zarqawi al Qaeda group. They operate mostly in Anbar province -- Fallujah and Ramadi. These are mostly "foreigners," that is, non-Iraqi Sunni Arab jihadists from all over the Muslim world and Europe. Most enter Iraq through Syria -- with, of course, the knowledge and complicity of the Syrian government -- and then travel down the "rat line" which is the trail of towns along the Euphrates River that we've been hitting hard for the last few months. Some are virtually untrained young jihadists who end up as suicide bombers or are used in "sacrifice squads."

The insurgent tactic most frustrating is their use of civilian non-combatants as cover. They know we do all we can to avoid civilian casualties, so therefore schools, hospitals and especially mosques are locations where they meet, stage for attacks, cache weapons and ammo and flee to when engaged. They have absolutely no regard whatsoever for civilian casualties. They will terrorize locals and murder without hesitation anyone believed to be sympathetic to the Americans or the new Iraqi government. Kidnapping of family members, especially children, is common to influence people they are trying to influence but cannot otherwise reach, such as local government officials, clerics or tribal leaders, etc.

According to [name redacted], morale among our guys is very high. They not only believe they are winning, but that they are winning decisively. They are stunned and dismayed by what they see in the American press, whom they almost universally view as against them. The embedded reporters are despised and distrusted. They are inflicting casualties at a rate of 20-1 and then see s*** like "Are we losing in Iraq?" on television and the print media.

For the most part, they are satisfied with their equipment, food and leadership. Bottom line, though, and they all say this: There are not enough guys there to drive the final stake through the heart of the insurgency, primarily because there aren't enough troops in-theater to shut down the borders with Iran and Syria.

All in all pretty fair it contrasts the highs with the lows and paints an honest picture of a military engaged in a death struggle against evil in the sands of Mesopotamia.

Now contrast that with Paul Rieckhoff's latest "piece of work". I don't care what people think, I don't much care for Mr. Rieckhoff, I know who he is and the organization he helped found, but I can't excuse him for the company he keeps. I'm a veteran as well and would never ideologically find myself on the same side of an issue as some of Mr. Rieckhoff's associates. In that regard he reminds me very much of Cindy Sheehan and both Mr. Rieckhoff and Ms. Sheehan seem to have no problem being tied to groups that supportive of Iraqi insurgents attacking American troops. Mr. Rieckhoff has done good in the world and for that I am supportive and I honor his service. I take exception to the company he keeps and the doom and gloom message he seems hellbent on portraying in Iraq. So the letter he received was also from an officer friend in Ramadi. It is your basic wild eyed rant from a very stressed soldier or marine, it is also going to be cannon fodder for the Left to use. I have a few problems with the writer of this letter for a few reasons, you see I was in Ramadi for several months in 2004 from the time of the execution style killing of the 4 Blackwater contractors in Fallujah through the battle for Ramadi and into the summer of 2004 when the insurgency gave us a good fight. I know very well how the living conditions are at FOB Blue Diamond or FOB Junction City and they are not as bad as the letter writer states. My first problem with the letter is this

We *can* make a difference here, and I believe in the mission as it looks on paper. But your president and his brain-dead colleagues aren't even trying to give us what we need to do it

It starts off well, but devolves into a typical Bush rant and I find the use of the term "your president" a strange one to use as Paul Rieckhoff doesn't seem like a Bush fan. The letter writer continues to complain and has this to say:

Speaking of contracts, KBR is a joke. I can't even enumerate the problems with their service, but I guarantee they do not receive less money based on how many of the showers don't work, or how many of us won't eat in the chow hall often because we get sick every time we do.

I would never in a million years work for KBR, but this is just sour grapes. I've eaten at that chow hall for months and the food isn't making you sick. Maybe washing your hands would help with that. The food isn't exactly 5 star cuisine but it is hot, filling and nutritious. You can eat as much as you like 3-4 meals a day, they serve meat, vegetables, fruit, bottled water, salad, ICE CREAM, Sodas, Near Beer as well as other things. You can get a submarine sandwich, a baked potato and even pizza on most occasions. So again I'm throwing down the bull**** card. I have walked in this persons shoes to a degree and I'm not seeing what he is seeing. From there we go full well into Bush is screwing us mode.

There is so much. I could go on forever. the worst thing, which we have discussed, is that they are playing these bullshit numbers games to fool America about troop strength. If they stopped paying KBR employees $100,000 to do the job of a $28,000 soldier, maybe they'd have enough money to send us enough soldiers to do the job. As it stands we have no offensive capability in the most dangerous city on earth

What exactly are "these bullshit numbers game"? I know the troop strength in al Anbar and Ramadi, what is the author trying to say that we do not have a Brigade of Army troops specifically for Ramadi? A brigade is usually what's assigned to a Metro area Ramadi's size. We have 1 Brigade in Kirkuk, a city of similar size, we have 1 Brigade of troops in Mosul, a Stryker Brigade from Alaska and until recently Mosul was just as dangerous if not more so than Ramadi is. Why the need to rag on KBR again? It's a well documented Leftwing moonbat meme that KBR is the source of evil in Iraq, why would an officer make this charge while he is ranting about troop strengths, there really is no comparison between the two. Finally we get to the part that is most confusing to me;

Where are the AC-130s? The apaches? They have them in FAR less active AOs (areas of operations). All we ever get is a single Huey and Cobra team, both of which are older than I am. it's such a joke. They're not even trying. At all. They have apaches in Tikrit but Hueys in Ramadi.

I debated how to answer this one for a while and this is what I decided upon. First of all, Apaches are an Army platform, Al Anbar is a Marine AO. The Army Brigade assigned to Al Anbar is task organized to the Marine Corps which means you get Marine Corps air power. Guess what kind of choppers the Marine Corps uses? Anyone........... Anyone...............Bueller? That's right the Marines use Cobra's and Huey's, the Marine Corps does not have Apache's, not a single one. Secondly, the Marine Corps would be loath to ask for Army Apache helicopters to move through their AO in large numbers. As for the AC-130's there are a limited amount of them in theater, and I'm sure the chain of command doesn't want AC-130's buzzing Ramadi all day long to root out some insurgents. People get kind of pissy when you use a 105mm Howitzer to ring the doorbell, and does the author want us to inflict more civilian casualties if we don't have to? I am a bit puzzled that an officer (if he's Army) doesn't know the equipment breakdown of the force he is working with. Give me a break, even privates would know what kind of equipment their unit has. If he is a Marine officer and he's asking where the Apache's are, I think he might be a little green around the gills if you get my meaning. He concluded with a little nugget of his personal wisdom;

I wish every American could see this for him/herself. Registering your frustration at the ballot box isn't nearly enough. There should be jail terms for this.

First things first, I don't think a military officer should be envisioning jail terms for his commander in chief or his chain of command. If he is serious he can resign his commission and face the music. Dissenting is fine to a point, but not in the military and especially not in an officer, supposedly a leader of men in combat. If he is honest and true, he should resign his commission and face whatever punishment that would entail. Don't send anonymous letters to a known anti- war activist and have it be used for grist by the UMCCODF (United Moonbat Collective Commune of Dangerous Fool). Finally I want to express one point; I too wish every American could see what we are doing in Iraq. They would see thousands of the sons and daughters of America helping those who can't help themselves, sacrificing blood for others they do not know. The American people would see the inherent sense of justice that Americans have. Our men and women want nothing more than to kill the tyrants and terrorists and go home. The people of this country would see true nobility in action, thought and deed in the daily struggles of our armed forces. They would see young Americans clawing and scraping and bleeding and dying to give freedom to people of another land and a different faith. Our men and women in uniform, heroes, every last one of them deserve the nation to see them
at their noblest in the midst of this struggle. They are our best and we owe them everything.

Antiwar hero looks like a liar.

Sergeant Jimmy Massey has been one of the darlings of the antiwar left, telling group after group what barbarians Americans fighting forces are, how callous they, how they relish gunning Iraqis down for no reason. He has a book out in France about this very subject that is quite popular. There's only one problem. Jimmy Massey is lying. Today there are two articles that talk about his smears against our brave and heroic fighting forces. One is from the St. Louis today newspaper and the other article comes from the Bradenton Herald. Apparently most of Mr. Massey's stories of the butchery he claims to have witnessed American soldiers taking part in never really happened at all. I'm never one to pile on a person, but in this case, I believe Mr. Massey deserves what he gets for trying to destroy the image the American people have of their military. If this was just a mistake I could forgive him, but he penned a book and profited off of his lies about the men and women fighting to protect us from evil. Of course, the antiwar left and their friends in the media did nothing to check his stories out, they believed him because they already believe our military is full of criminals, murderers, sadists and worse of all to them Bush voters. First there was the debacle of Cindy Sheehan and now the antiwar forces will have to deal with this man and his lies. So the left defends liars that smear brave soldiers, the left defends a woman that used her son's death to promote her political agenda and the left defends the insurgents in Iraq. Like I asked yesteday, who is evil?

Project Valour-IT

Want to do everything possible to help soldiers? Want to make a difference for some of our wounded heroes? If the answer is yes, then check this link out. Project Valour-IT is a project that provides voice-controlled software and laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at major military medical centers. Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone, our wounded heroes are able to send and receive messages from friends and loved ones, surf the 'Net, and communicate with buddies still in the field without having to press a key or move a mouse. Those who have given the most are going to be given the best to allow them to have normal fulfilling lives. We as Americans must not let these brave men and women down. In the struggle for freedom and justice these men and women have sacrificed with blood and bone, this is a chance for us to repay a small part of that debt.

Now in the long tradition of intraservice rivalary the 4 branches are running 4 different teams. Of course the Army team is being led by blackfive, but anyone can donate. If you are an army blogger and want to help out, go here and sign up. Remember people we can't let the Squiddies, the Zoomies or the Devil Puppies beat us. Just kidding everyone, just donate to this noble and worthy cause if yo can.

Moonbat Central happy Contractors are killed in Iraq

Well, well, well, it seems the loony left has taken a step closer to the abyss known as insanity. I was surfing through the slime over at Democratic Underground, and I came across this gem of a thread. Apparently the moonbats are as stupid as they are evil. Being divorced from reality is hard, but the true moonies do it with style. Apparently they are ignorant when it comes to the various roles contractors play in Iraq. A few of my favorite quotes are:

matt819: These folks are mercenaries, pure and simple. You can attach other labels to make it sound nicer - private contractors, for example - but they are in it for the money, they carry weapons, and they kill people. That makes them mercenaries. Sorry folks, not a lot of sympathy here.

leesa: So it goes, no sympathy

bluestateguy: Kind of makes you wonder about the wisdom of going to war for profit
They should take a hint and get out of Iraq. Unlike the troops, they have a choice, and they are making a hell of a lot more money than the troops are too.

Vidar: Good riddance

The hatred the left has for some Americans in Iraq is on full display in this thread. Not that I'm at all surprised, but when I come across things like this, it reinforces my beliefs that the democratic party, at least the left wing that is almost half of their numbers is truly batshit crazy and hate filled.

So a few facts for the deranged left wingnuts;

1. Most contractors in Iraq love their country and are motivated by patriotism and service, don't get me wrong, the money is a benefit, but it's rarely "all about the money". I have been three times to serve my country, the money made it easier, but I'd go back for much much less.

2. The DUmmies, did get one thing right, most of us are former military that are retired, joined the private sector out of the service, or are just veterans that still want to give. I guess they only care for the soldiers that they can use as props for their poisioned agenda and don't care about contractors that do not allow them to score political points.

3. Most contractors do not carry weapons, most are unarmed when they leave the FOB's, of course the PSD guys are always armed as are some of the groups training police, but most of us are not armed, or some arm themselves without their companies knowing. And I can say that contractors rarely kill, self defense is everyone's right, but if you follow the DU logic, contractors are scum and they should not be allowed to defend themselves.

4. What the loony left always forgets is that we all have a choice, no one MUST join the military, people volunteer to do so and when they take that oath, they know full well they stand a great chance of going to war. When a contractor takes a job, he or she volunteers and can leave, but at the loss of much of the money, the job that sent them there and in many cases they suffer a blacklisting in their community. Granted soldiers cannot leave at all, but to say that contractors have a choice where soldiers don't is ridiculous. Everyone that is in Iraq or Afghanistan volunteered to be there, saying anything less is disengenious.

Everyday over at that site, there are message threads dedicated to the deaths of contractors, or wishes for Bush to be killed, or for enough soldiers to die that the public turns against the war. You rarely see anyone wishing us victory, or lauding the troops for fighting terrorists or support for the War on Terror at all. The hypocrisy of the left in these matters is beyond question and yet everyday like tireless automatons they decry and denounce the Republican Party as the party of hate and evil. All the while they defend anti-semites, terrorists, and communists, so who's evil again?

Sorry I've been gone so long

My time in Iraq is nearly over and I was training my replacement the last few weeks, but now I am in a place where I can blog a little more and soon I'll be home and able to write at will. More to follow.
