In 2018 it is more dangerous to be in school than to be in the military. Well, not exactly, proportionally. But it makes for a good headline.

“Thank you for your service.” What if, in return, we veterans found ways to acknowledge the service of the small-business owner who is indeed the strength of America? Or the service of the inner-city teacher whose job it is to turn children into contributing citizens? Or the service of the single mom behind the cash register who is working two jobs? A retired brigadier general's opinion in The Washington Post.

It seems I'm the only one who thinks that this is funny.

It would be more amusing and less distressing to watch this presidency fall apart were people not literally dying as part of the process.

I'm a day late to the party but I still want you to consider this. If you want to be able to continue to read the drivel that I post here without having to buy a premium internet package or you otherwise would like to see the internet not become like cable television, please head over to dearfcc.org and help petition the FCC to not repeal its Title II decision made two years ago. Title II, aka "Net Neutrality", is what makes communications networks like the telephone network and the internet function on a level playing field, ensuring that a phone call to grandma is treated the same as a phone call to your florist and it is what will ensure that access to this website and other small websites is neither prioritized nor blocked in a way different to the big players like Google or Facebook. It's very important to the future of the internet and I encourage everyone to participate in petitioning the FCC to keep it.
