Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

A Man And His Dog, Pt II:

Earlier, on August 26th, I wrote about the devoted dog who refused to leave the casket of his owner, SEAL member Petty Officer Jon Tumilson, one of 22 SEALs shot down in Afghanistan in their Chinook helo on August 6th -- a crash that killed thirty-eight soldiers and crew members overall.

Tumilson's Labrador retriever, Hawkeye (below and above), was being taken care of, temporarily, by a friend.

From the UK Mail Online, it appears the friend, Scott Nichols, has had Tumilson's dog Hawkeye willed to him.

Yes, NFO, I thought it was great news.

Leticia, I would agree; you could only hope for half that dog's loyalty.

MrC: yes, indeed. Heart-rending.
