Justifiable Bravado

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Visited with my elder son over Easter weekend and lent a hand looking for off-campus housing. Even in the lovely, politically progressive town of Boulder, the reaction to two NROTC students innocently looking for a place to live was generous and inspiring. Nearly every building manager and potential landlord expressed their strong interest in having NROTC students as tenants. The Internet and its social media buzz are all about on-line reputation, too often evaluated by the number hits or size of following herd. Real reputation is rooted in what one is known for; with whom one associates; and what one can be counted on to deliver. SEAL Sniper This shot is a bit direct and a take-off of despair.com, one of my favorite web sites. Thanks to TARP etc., they now have sufficient material for a complete overhaul of nearly every product. To think, at one moment recently, we thought that V.P. Dick Cheny was one of a kind. Ah, for the good old days. At any rate, I comforted that there are those who know what they are doing and able to stand-up to the very worst kind of bullying. There is nothing charming about having your work day interrupted by an intruder with an automatic weapon. Go Navy!
