    Bob is a very strong advocate of air power, especially long-range heavy bombers. He kind of reminds me of Curtis Lemay in his thinking on military doctrine.

    That's admirable of you. I'm not being a smart ass, I seriously mean that. I wish I had that kind of drive. But if it wasn't for the gov "assistance" I probably would not have earned my degree. It took tuition being free for me to get off my lazy ass and stop making excuses.

    It cracked me up to be "objectively" evaluated on my PUBLIC speaking ability by speaking to a tape recorder while sitting alone in a room for 10 minutes.

    That test alone proves that everyone can achieve at least 3 semester hours of college credit. Dale Carnegie would roll over in his grave!
