yeah yeah yeah

I'm weighing in now on the whole VA debate, considering I do have some personal experience. But all I have to say is, whats with the major delay in the media with these stories: Example, I knew about the stupidity at Abu Ghraib almost from the time we landed there. It was via Rumint (Rumor Intelligence) of course, but Rumint is pretty accurate at times. When did the story really crack? April, I'd already been there 4 months.
Now again with the VA but I tell you this, things have been this way for YEARS!! Glad to have the publicity, now lets fix it shall we!!!!!!!!! Anyway, enough ranting from me.
Life is good, but quiet here. I volunteered with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and have a Little Sister I do things with a couple of times a month. Its great and a lot of fun. We were going skiing this weekend but it got warm here and thus no snow on Mount Lemmon (Be quiet Mum I know you're glad for that). I enjoy it and it is fulfilling.
Outside of those activities I live quietly at home, watching and lately doing a lot of reading again.

Ha! Yeah, right? Everyone in the military already knew how screwed up that HMO system is, which is why the majority of us don't want state-run healthcare, because this is a great example of it!
I don't know why this is news now. It truly is nothing new.

The military health care back in 70's wasn't always good either- I was in AF back then, we always said, some of the dr. owed government so they were just buying time, til they got out, so they didn't always do their best. Some of the bedside manners were really horid and there wasn't much you could do about it.
You brought up the Abu Ghraib thing- this was so discusting. Really irrated me why they had to show a military woman, brainless one, why didn't they show the women who worked really hard and do their jobs well. Media irks me.
