"One day a scorpion arrived at the bank of a river he wanted to cross, but there was no bridge. He asked a frog that was sitting nearby if he would take him across the river on his back. The frog refused and said, 'I will not, because you will sting me.'

"The scorpion replied, 'It would be foolish for me to sting you because then we would both drown.'

"The frog saw the logic in the scorpion's words, and agreed to carry the scorpion across. But when they were halfway across the river the scorpion stung the frog. The stunned frog asked, 'Why did you sting me? Now we will both die!'

"The scorpion replied, 'Because I'm a scorpion … and that's what scorpions do.'"

Hopefully it ends up better than the last time Lara Logan and 7th Group met up...

60 Minutes 7th Group AFG video

My favorite quote from the older video (and the teaching point for all you young Regiment guys out there, that the cameras are always on and what you say is forever...):

Quote:
"Yeah. It's only pain when you acknowledge it. There's work that has to be done. You don't have the luxury of self pity," he replied.

Rarely does a visit from 60 Minutes go well for the military.

My experience with news reporters is all bad. I was all for letting the reporters see what was "really happening" in El Sal. It bit me big time when one followed myself and B.H. around. Damn near came to a Court Marshall for the both of us. The lies, twisting of question asked versus REAL question asked, half truth and BS proved to me that I do not do interviews, I do not talk to the press, and they can all kiss my rosy red.

I am pretty good friends with Chris, and he seemed shorter when I first saw him after he was out of therapy. He decided to have his prosthetic legs made two inches shorter and two shoe sizes smaller. Said pants and shoes were more readily available in his 'new' size. Chris is hilarious sometimes.

Reminds me of a guy I knew who stepped on a toe-popper which resulted in one foot being 2 boot sizes smaller than his other foot - drove the S4s crazy when issuing him jungle boots or ski boots.
