Ted Rall's Apoplexy
Kansas City...


Never drank coffee while in the Army.  I think I've said that before. 

Here's one reason why:  I was working for our S-2 who I thought was an old timer.  He was a two-pack-a-day smoker and a multiple coffee thermos refiller.

One night, we were sitting around a fire/BBQ pit talking of retirement.  The Major was complaining.

    Me:  What have you got to complain about, Sir?  You could retire any time.

    Major D.:  Retire?  @#$% you, LT!  I'm thirty four years old!!!
