I've got no problem with responsible hunting, but the real answer for Lyme (and other tick-borne diseases) is here:
Why this system is so expensive (almost $1000 to get set up), difficult to purchase (one manufacturer, who's not real good about returning calls), and why government is not helping to get these things deployed (ok, well we know the answer to THAT one) - is a bit of a mystery.
Anyone, who wants to understand what's really likely to be going on here, needs to simply take 60 hours or so and watch the HBO drama "The Wire". In some likelihood, there are one or more people who want to screw this trooper, and one or more that want to protect him - the former perhaps a senior officer about whose wife Wetherington was overhead making a crude allusion, the latter perhaps an ADA who was caught receiving fellatio from an aid by the trooper. Or maybe it has nothing to do with the trooper himself. Maybe somebody has it in for his boss and wants to hurt him by firing a valued member of his team. Who knows the exact story - but It would be very naive to actually believe this is about punishing untruthfullness or about forgiving a mistake.
I imagine many people besides a Cary citizen could say something so snarky. While I agree the last half of his last sentence is pretty lame, the rest of Dominick's letter is right-on.
Well, it does reflect that same double standard that makes it ok to joke about men (e.g. why is a cucumber better than a man ?).
But, it's pretty funny too, although maybe the author should be paying royalties to the (white) guy who wrote "Stuff White People Like".
If Craig really wants to pursue his cultural anthropology though, he should go see Gillian Welch or DriveBy Truckers.
Uh, Steven, sounds like you think you are a patriot. If you really were, you might understand the way our democracy is supposed to work. The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces; they answer to him. Sounds like you would like us to be a little more like Pakistan, where the Army is a separate entity competing for power with the democratically-elected gov't. Put another way, there are brave Americans fighting all over the world to protect our Constitution; it seems like the least you can do is understand and respect what they are fighting to protect.
P.S. McGovern flew in a bomber during WWII.
I'm surprised Grayson didn't mention that this is more or less how Drive-By Truckers funded their breakout album Southern Rock Opera (before it was re-issued by the label that picked it up).
Noexpiration summd it up pretty well. I'd put it more succinctly as "silly boys, don't they know it's not cool to be able to understand the lyrics ?"
