I received this interesting tidbit from one of our members who attended our NYC Roundtable meeting yesterday:
"I just wanted to 'hello' before yesterday's terrific lunch and discussion (ie. at J. P. Clarkes in NYC) fades too quickly into the past and let everyone know what a great time I had and how much I look forward to attending similar events in the future.
Also, here's the rather archtypical but ludicrous reference to GAC that appeared in a recent Frank Rich column in the NY Times:
“In a time of war,” Mr. McCain said last week, “the commander in chief doesn’t get a learning curve.” Fair enough, but he imparted this wisdom in a speech that was almost a year behind Mr. Obama in recognizing Afghanistan as the central front in the war against Al Qaeda. Given that it took the deadliest Taliban suicide bombing in Kabul since 9/11 to get Mr. McCain’s attention, you have to wonder if even General Custer’s learning curve was faster than his. ----------------------
Sounds to me like Frank Rich could be a regular contributor at the "other forum".
"The more I see of movement here (Little Big Horn Battlefield), the more I have admiration for Custer, and I am satisfied his like will not be found very soon again.”
~ Gen. Nelson Miles, Commanding General of the Army ------
"With our cherished ones deliverance within our grasp we waited breathless two hours, for the order that never came."
