Hi MikeLong, you just have to have a popular topic. It will organically (Automatically) move it's way up or down the "Whats new today" side bar.

Lol, I'm not perfect, sometimes it needs to be done. I don't hold grudges about stuff like that :)

Thanks, Mike - I've been called easy before, but never in that context.

Thank you for the well thought, and poignantly written, response to Sassafras.  He actually called another veteran an 'unpatriotic coward' even after knowing the man was a retired intelligence officer.  I do hope that he eventually takes the time to question his belief-set, if even only to doubt it for an instant.  In any event, I'm pleased to have your input on this site on all issues - although this one in particular is distinctly pleasing.
