Brings to mind this old joke:
?Know the difference between the Boy Scouts and the US Military? One has adult leadership.?

I would really really really really really really love Don Rumsfeld if he looked at this stupid, asinine, ridiculous, outrageous, absurd, backward, damnable, detestable, disgusting, atrocious, deplorable, abhorrent, abominable, accursed, atrocious, cursed, depraved, despicable, detestable, dratted, execrable, hateful, odious, offensive, outrageous, wicked decision which obviously somebody way below him on the pay grade scale made and then fire the idiot who made it and said the Boy Scouts are entitled and welcome to meet on any United States Military Post Camp or Station in any state, territory, reservation, or occupied country they choose.
Damn these people.
The original article I've read says WARN, not ORDER, so iff the former term is correct it looks like the USDOD is leaving it to base commanders to make the final decision. They'll prob just toss the warning in the LAUGH-OF-THE-DAY/DO-NOTHING OFFICE FILES.Posted by JosephMendiola at November 17, 2004 02:09 AM
