Matty, Donnie, it just ain't our Army anymore...

Though Don Sensing probably approves (no disrespect intended, Don! You got the call, not me, so I'm a little rougher on the edges than you).

Lap dances are the cause of discipline problems. Not unsteady leadership? Not deployment stress and uncertainty? Lap dances? There really has to be more to this than is being reported. At least I hope so.

In my experience, declining discipline is almost exclusively a leadership issue - whether it's political or military. It isn't exotic dancers. At best, they are a symptom.

Hey - we still managed the stymie the Soviets, even with Margaret at Grafenwoehr!
