Before we get to the meat and potatoes of this week’s update, let’s all take a moment to thank all our veterans for making this country safe for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is only through their service that you enjoy the freedom to vote (and protest, and celebrate, and Tweet) even if forty percent of you never got around to fulfilling that particular voting duty. Aren’t you glad that our soldiers always fulfill theirs?
And of course, a very happy 241st birthday to the United States Marine Corps, the most lethal fighting force in the history of mankind! You haven’t aged a day!
