  1. I deleted your comment daledog. The actions of Ms. Jones-Kelly are completely unrelated as to whether she was qualified or unqualified to perform her job.

  2. Donald,
    I don’t mind being deleted. In years of posting, this has been my first. However, do not actions Ms. Jones-Kelley absolutely point to the fact that she was unqualified for the job?

    Two things:
    1. Waaah.
    2. I don’t expect any post of mine to ‘solve’ anything. Silly.

  3. No daledog it does not . She may be perfectly qualified to perform her duties, I do not know. Her failing was a moral one. Now it could be argued that someone who engages in immoral conduct in a position of public trust is thereby unqalified to hold that position, but no test known to man can determine, unfortunately, who will betray a public trust. If there were such a test, I suspect that many politicians and political appointees would swiftly be finding new lines of employment.

  4. “Are there really any other generals worth mentioning?”

    As my brother used to say when discussing the Civil War with fellow Army officers from the South: “In Illinois we heard that one of our local boys from Galena won a battle or two. I think his name was Grant?”

  5. Correct Phillip! One of my favorite generals of the Late Unpleasantness, and vastly underated in my opinion. He will be the subject of a future post by me. The warm glow of victory goes to you today.

  6. I shall add the warm glow I feel from this victory and add it to the joy of Christmas.

    A Merry Christmas to you and yours
