    Now that's funny! Air Force RoE for Blogging?

    • 1 Comments
    My tax dollars at work. Trust the military to "document" something that's already available from any reputable PR agent. Heh. I guess not everybody gets to be an astronaut, fighter pilot or superhacker in the Air Force. The Air Force’s...

    My buddy, one of the Steves, has gotten nostalgic for his girlish figure of yore... for reasons inexplicable to me. Round is a shape, right? He's very much in shape now! Come to think of it, so am I. *sigh* But, because he likes to lose at contests, he...
