Combat veterans have another reason to be outraged by arrogant wannabees. In an article, New York Times, May 18th., that reveals the Connecticut Attorney General has been trading on a wartime history that is indefensible. As a veteran, if you find it irritating that a former President was a Guardsman who was guarding the rear, ticked that another silver spoon-fed politician as a vet twenty years earlier detailed conduct of combat soldiers before Congress, angered by a third who continues shabby treatment of veteran issues as a legislator when touting military service as a POW that other former POWs question. But for this politician to arrogantly believe it is cachet today to be a combat veteran, in order to win votes and approval – incredible! For a lawyer turned politician to continue the practice of creatively manipulating juries/voters through inferred, implied and crafted speech – has no understanding that facts are all available to be researched on the Internet.

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'guerre'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
