Re: Tough Guy


It's a good line on the resume before he goes into the family business of running for office. Even in the current war, which is likely to be over by the time a new enlistee finishes basic training, less than one in a thousand soldiers have actually died in combat, so as risks go, it's not so bad (he can also choose a less risky specialty when the time comes). Many moms are proud of their soldier sons.

You are wrong about this one.

It might say "Screw you, Mom," but it might say any number of other things.

You're right, Tripp, it could mean many things, and the post sounds more sure than I really am. Still, it doesn't seem very considerate of him.

arthur, surely the most important line on his resume is the one where it says "Daley"? Chicago will need a mayor after Richard retires.

Dads worry as much as moms; dads just internalize the worry and have heart attacks.

Mmm, did anybody think to mention that Patrick Daley is a Republican?
