    Presenting: The Encyclopedia of Ethical Failure

    I think the approach of just putting real cases out there.

    Should be placed in every bathroom stall in the AF:

    Your expectations of bathroom stall-size are rather unrealistic.

    I know, right?

    When was the last time you read anything from the DoD that was legitimately funny? (As opposed to the countless DoD publications that were unintentionally funny.)

    I'm rather impressed.

    Back at Clark in the late 90s, there was a cop that wrote the daily blotter article in the base newspaper...and he would always add snarky commentary to it. The column was a huge hit. He later went on and did the same thing at another base. Of course, he had plenty of material to work with at Clark.

    Reading this had me wondering if he, or someone who learned from him had a hand in writing this.

    A little light reading for those slightly more turbulent periods of indigestion?

    Stuff like this used to be on the "read & sign" clipboard back in the day.
    All the Art 15s on the base and all the courts martial in the command.
    For some reason the AF stopped this practice...

    The humor reminded my of messages the Navy's chief of safety used to put out in the mid-90's. Great commentary was included, often of a sarcastic nature. I wonder if the admiral has switched careers?

    I chuckled at the supervisory special agent who showed her B&Cs to the local cop. That goes on every single day across the breadth of law enforcement (military and civilian).

    He must have written from beneath a hell of a lot of volcanic ash considering that Clark was buried in '91 by Mt. Pinatubo.:smile:
