Jesus, I bet you were prone to blurting out rude questions to strangers in line at the grocery store as a kid (presuming you are now an adult, which might be stretch).

Well that makes no sense, but okay.

Cartilaginous tissues grow as we age, and don't always do it evenly. Now, any thoughts on James Mattis' fitness for SecDef?

Cool. Now I know. I don't know anything about him, but the consensus seems to be he's a hard ass who's fit for the job. Sounds good to me.

No apologies necessary ... ever. I was just nitpickin' .

It is the projection of weakness and indecision that encourages assailants, not quiet respectful preparedness.
