    A couple of years later back in the states in a much larger regional hospital i had 4 young enlisted women as part of my pharmacy technician group. One was married, one dated and later married one of the male pharmacy technicians, the other two were single. All were ladies in every sense of the word.


    In that era i guess that was an indicator of the quality of the people the different services were taking in.
    That’s an interesting dichotomy. I never intended to besmirch any of the ladies who dawn a uniform as I don’t think it’s your intentions either. Hopefully I haven’t come across that way.

    What baffles led me is the urge to claim women are equally tough, strong, skilled, intelligent, etc. Then feel the need to stop men for being men in the presence of women for fear it will harm the delicate nature. Then you catch the ‘‘modern woman’’ ‘‘talking out is school’’ and she’s as filthy as any sailor I’ve ever met.

    I found this story way more significant...

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———

    Excellent point. What if the shoe were on the other foot? Would there be the same outrage? Me thinks not.
