There was a time, a long time in fact, when the best possible stateside duty a Marine could hope for was Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Orange County.
I know a few things in this world, and one, sadly, is the real nature, character, and intelligence level of the actor Stephen Baldwin. He may or may not remember our encounter; Donny Osmond, I believe clearly would remember it.

Not too long ago I watched Johnny Got His Gun, the film adaptation of Dalton Trumbo’s famous antiwar novel.

John McCain seems a different person probably because of the advice he is getting from the Rove-pros who now are handling his campaign. He is on the attack. But he protests too much, and what he says is mostly raw conjecture based on how his advisors choreograph his campaign. He [they] blame Obama for what he did not do, and for what. McCain says would have been the result [if] there had not be a surge [Obama voted against it]. According to McCain, Iraq would have been thrown into deplorable chaos, etc., all of which is pure speculation because there was a surge, that began months after the Anbar Awakening [all of McCain’s fibs to the contrary]. It is not what John McCain says, but how his team justifies his make-believes that reveals their hypocrisy.
