    Fair enough, either way it's a giant "shrug" to me!

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    Re: The SecDef is ON THE JOB

    I agree that it shouldn't need to be a SECDEF issue. How embarassing for the services that they have to be told this.

    I do think that our "standards" of what we think looks "neat, clean and professional" are based off of social norms that are largely designed by white, christians.

    Hagel's direction is short-sighted though...why keep a special out only for Black women? This is another opportunity to codify approval of sikhs wearing turban, for example, and see if we aren't institutionally disciminating against other groups with our standards....when's the last time you saw a Samoan with a 32" waist?

    When I say, "I am infinitely more qualified to be SECDEF than Mumbles Hagel" it is based on experience, education and training.

    Are these the Jews who live in cliff-dwellings in Four Corners region of the southwest?

    Oh, maybe I'm thinking of Anasazi.

    My cousin Dave sported a "white guy with a fro" back in the day. The 70's was a strange time.
