A slightly ignored news piece. Recently reported that a 16 year old girl in Oregon has been diagnosed with Bubonic Plague. Ammazingly enough, it's been so long since anyone even mentioned Bubonic Plague, that my spell checker questioned my spelling of the word Bubonic. Perhaps the computer in all it's wisdom didn't think I should capitalize the word Bubonic.

Once again, the U.S. has relegated itself via a number of states to a token defensive position. Many states have been reported to be arming active military personnel at their respective recruitment centers and military bases. Not that this practice isn't a good move and long over due, but very few wars are won by standing solely on defense. Actually, no wars have been won by defense.
