    That's an awesome video...any know where to find a video or recording of the rebuttal John Glenn gave during that debate? I have found it in text but it would be cool to hear his emotion when he was talking about it.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Thanks for the great responses.

    Tell your brother God Speed. He won't be your baby brother much longer when he get's done over there. 1st Mar Div is outstanding unit. Nobody better. He is in good hands. Semper Fi to all you Marines.
