As if it wasn't bad enough to have recruits born in 1990.....

The year I got married, making them young enough to be my children, (BLECH), NOW I've got a recruit born in 1988, meaning 25 years old, who is married and the wife is about to have the 2nd kid...i.e. now they're like my fucking GRANDCHILDREN. Double blech.

The guy is traveling from SF, but his Cell phone # is an 801 area code. That's Utah, for those of you who don't go around memorizing that kind of thing. So I'm assuming he's Mormon, but it still creeps me out something fierce.

Rolf Harris? Really (Possible triggers, Google at your own risk.)

Since I'm American, I didn't grow up with Jimmy Savile, and I didn't really know Rolf Harris as a "personality" until I started watched tons of British telly, including panel shows. Hell, I just watched the concert for the Queen's Jubilee LAST WEEK! BUT...I've certainly known "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport," as long as I can remember.

I almost wish that HIGNFY was filming right now. As painful as it was to watch, their "Post-Jimmy Savile revelation" shows did a great job of dealing with the issue. I'd like to see what they make of this.

All outrage is assuming the charges are true. If not, some massive apologies are going to be in order.
