Re: When journalism goes bad

Every professional organization out there is currently releasing statements clarifying that they are opposed to racism. Why should CNN, Painboy's workplace, or the local 7-11 be any different? Goddammit Thoreau! I read this and decided to check my work email. Sure enough I have an email from my CEO...

So. I'm having trouble coming to terms with the fact that a man that calls himself "Charlamagne tha God" has captured the public dialog regarding a major party candidate for POTUS in an election year.

Well, it seems to be confirmed (no one will go by her house to actually test her, though) that someone in my battalion has COVID-19. She and I work in the same office. Good thing we haven't decided to restrict operations to essential personnel only.

Naming them after the guy who stole them in the first place was a pretty ballsy move.
If by "stole" you mean "saved them for humanity from certain destruction", I don't think it's that ballsy.

If I do not make overdue medical and dental appointments in the Army, those departments eventually will call ME and offer appointments at much earlier dates than I would get otherwise. This is wonderful, even if I have to hide in a closet when I hear 1SG in the hallway in the meanwhile.
