    Then again, by fifty years the attrition rate will have begun to accelerate, so there’s always the chance that somebody you despised will no longer be attending!

    You are right, of course, but Doonesbury has been a political strip most of the time since its inception during the Vietnam War. The McEldowney strips frequently make biting social comments. All three are among my favorites.

    People like that are the main reason I quit hanging out at Party HQ. Canvassing is all you can do anymore. People are sick unto death of their hijacked televisions and jammed mailboxes.

    Here in Wisconsin, Governor Walker’s voter suppression efforts have been put on hold until after the November election by the court. If we didn’t win one once in a while, we’d probably start breaking and stealing things.

    I returned to college after military service in 1971. I joined the campus veteran’s club almost immediately. By this time, most the non-Vietnam Vets were spooked out of the club. We were hard-partying animals, and some of us were worse-behaved than many of the Greeks. Many of us actually graduated.

    Sarah Palin could get some ratings boost by dropping her top at a hockey game while singing the National Anthem, as did Lucy Lawless (Zena, Warrior Princess).

    Lewreader is right. After a certain age, men are no longer perceived as a threat by young women. At sixty-five, I can chat with young women casually, because although I would happily kill to to be able to have a relationship, we BOTH know it’s never going to happen.

    The party is Wisconsin is only beginning, as the Fuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan Wisconsin found out earlier this week. Good times!

    My personal experience with the VA is many vets have heard completely untrue horror stories about the VA, and are reluctant to use the service. I try to get as many of my veteran friends as possible to avail themselves of the many programs and services by talking about how I got plugged into my best military service benefit.
