Lamar, I really miss him
(Departed this life for the next a few months ago). A unique Character. We are at the Forscom/Tradoc Conference. I think St Louis. I am bored out of my gourd. Lamar says to me, "let's have a drink." We can't have a drink. We are in uniform. He says I have some bourbon in my room. What the heck! We go up to his room? Pour a drink and shoot the breeze. I can't drink anyway (goes right to my head). We have another one. Lamar says, "let's watch a movie." We watched "Scent of a Woman." I thought it was maybe porno. Turns out it was a terrific movie. We then went back downstairs just in time for the conference to end. Good memory.
This is the worst crop of presidential candidates ever. I have ranted so much about Trump, not him but who is voting for him, I am thru. I will stick with my prediction of the demographics will determine it. US democrats, Hispanics, blacks, gays, young people (if we can corral them), will put Hillary in. In most ways I could care less. The difference in us and most democracies--the president can send us to war and we know how disastrous that can be: Vietnam, Iraq, etc.
