    So, I made Rolling Stone's "What's Hot" list for 2009...

    So, in the theme of Dizzy Dean's famous quote, "It ain't bragging if you can do it", can I crow just a little bit about a joint project I've been involved in for the last few years?

    I'm a contributor to an online journal called "The Small Wars Journal" and we just got named to Rolling Stone's 2009 "What's Hot" list. So, does this make me officially a (co-) Rock Star?

    I'll be sure to have my lovely bride throw panties at me, just to make the effect complete....

    I think I'm a bit giddy....

    Can you direct to some of your own SWJ contributions? I would like to read.

    Thanks for the lead to that site, will make for some very educational reading for me.

    (I was able to drop my first 120mm when I went to observe an Illum/HE mission during AT in May, very motivating, I just wanted to see where all the good stuff goes from our ASP. They said I was the first CSS 6 that has came out to see what goes on in a few years, blew my mind.)

    BTW, that's M256 high velocity 120mm Rheinmetall cannon, not the 120mm mortar kind.

    But the mortar is pretty darned impressive, too.

    Remember, the OP was at least partially tongue-in-cheek. It beats me how a web forum can be "hot". At least in the Lady Ga-Ga sense of the word....

    Hey, don't insult your contemporaries. Unfortunately, a life of celebrity probably associates a person with 10 tools for everyone you'd care to be associated with. It's not unlike how you get the Facts Of Life.
