A student who lives in what used to be America, I study the role of the military in our more modern history, which is instructive for understanding the present. Former Navy, current Democrat, forever weird.
Also, I know that this won't matter in the long run, but I just want to point out that I in no way whatsoever support the RNC or our !President's "compassionate conservative agenda." I don't know where Google gets off making these sorts of connections.
I have no expectation that anything written here will ever be read, but if it is I will not care. Nothing is posted here I wouldn't mind sharing with the world, but the only real purpose of this journal is to serve as a sort of mental treadmill for those increasingly infrequent times when I simply must write.
