Life used to be so simple…

General Jack D. Ripper… when the enemy was fluoridation. Check out Bob Kerr’s column in today’s ProJo for his take on National Guard adjutant general, and acting head of RIEMA, Maj. Gen. Robert T. Bray. Comparing him to Gen. Jack D. Ripper of the 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove, Kerr perfectly lays out this local example of all that is silly and wasteful, and dangerous, in our response to the constant post-9/11 fear-mongering. I’m sure this depressing scenario is being played out elsewhere about the country. (And the Governor has it all wrong, again! Could somebody please send that man a copy of ‘Constitutional Law for Dummies’?)

One last thing, you know how when old people tell you something they used to watch is really funny, but it never is? (I’m sorry, but The Honeymooners blows and it always did.) Here’s the exception, Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. It’s genius.
