I hate to skewer your illusions, TPaine, but the US government’s military will do, at least above the 65% level, exactly what their superiors tell them to do, exactly like they did after Katrina in New Orleans and nearby Parishes.

As to regular posting, I’m not sure when I will have time.

I still owe Kerodin an E&E post with pics. Will do my best to get that complete by weeks’ end.
