Hello Jon...

thats a little severe.  I find 30 plus billion dollar programs and climbing 
for three people in cans that arnt working A WASTE and poorly run 
engineering projects but then I have always been oppossed to waste.  I 
dispise waste wheather its in the DOD or HHS.  I guess that you think waste 
is ok...

Granted opinions are like anatomical parts we all have them but gee isnt 
that the stuff of great debates on teh issues of our times?  How do you know 
that my thesis is wrong?  Is it only because you think it is...?

And they arnt my opinions alone...

This is the one that really fracks me.  No I dont think that what you say is 
drivel.  You see I like to hear lots of opinions including the ones that 
dont agree with mine.  EsPECIALLY the ones that dont agree with mine.  I 
would never say that someones opinions are drivel.  I respect the give and 
take of debate to much and am more then happy to hold my own in them.

I am a fighter pilot by profession. I dont get personal...you lose that way.

Lets agree/disagree and have fun at it.
