H&I fires 16 Jan 06

Open post for those with something to share. New, complete posts come in below.

CDR Salamander has an interesting post about Sexual politics and LT Black's Courts Martial

Interesting tidbits in history today:

1957 3 B-52s leave California on the first non-stop world flight. The Armorer would note that was his birth year - and unlike the Armorer, B-52s are still on active duty.
2001 Andrew J. Smith, 55th Mass, awarded a Medal of Honor, for Nov 30, 1864.
2001 Theodore Roosevelt awarded a Medal of Honor for San Juan Heights in 1898.

Both victims of the politics of the era. -The Armorer

Holocaust Debate?!

Iran is planning to host a debate to "assess the scale and consequences of the Holocaust." To me, this would be like Syria hosting a debate about the Khmer Rouge years. I'd say this lunacy is getting out of hand., and I am beginning to wonder if maybe Iran isn't intentionally trying to goad Israel into an attack. Could Iran already have a nuclear weapon, and is just trying to legitimize the use of it? - SangerM

Oops! Shoulda done this a long time ago, but I've been kinda "distracted" with the people tracking mud through my blog home lately:

Today is the last day for bidding on a piece of Beatles memorabilia with profits going to Valour-IT. Captain Ziegenfuss has the details. - Fuzzybear Lioness

I've always liked "Davids Medienkritik," but this article really made my day. I suspect it'll do the same for you--if you're an American, that is. If you're European, it might not be as pleasant to read. oh, well. - SangerM
