Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

How do you plan to pee in the military, ladies?

Arroyo Grande

By Kenneth Goodman

One thing I would like to know about women in combat, please.

I thought of my time in combat in Korea. Just a few questions: Why was my helmet called a piss-pot? Where do you potty in a foxhole, revetment, or bunker, and what do you do for toilet paper? How often do you take a shower and where? Even in our rest area, the “outhouse” had four holes in a board over some barrels, and there was no privacy as I sat alongside a guy only a foot away from me.

Let’s see now, um, how will that work?

Ladies?
