Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Military Women Rock!

I just wanted to post this call out to the NYT for a great article on the increased role women are playing in Iraq and Afghanistan.

New barriers are being broken by these brave women. They are showing the boys that they can play as hard and tough as any man and they are gaining the respect of their male colleagues.

Audie Murphy (the most decorated American soldier in WWII) enlisted at the age of 16 with a fake birth certificate. He was 5'5" with a small body frame (so not like Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars).

Size and physical strength are not the determining factor on a modern battle field. The only reason now to restrict roles for women in the military is sociological/political.
