Help Wanted: U.S. Defense Department Seeks Better PR Officers

"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age, but . . . our country has not adapted. For the most part, the U.S. government still functions as a 'five and dime' store in an eBay world."

--U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, on why al Qaeda is winning hearts and minds, in speech to U.S. Council on Foreign Relation (Thanks to alert WORDster Mark Larson) WORD Note: The WORD will take the next week off for Spring Break, sleeping in and seeking wisdom. Return: 3/20/06

Many bands played throughout the party, keeping a pretty steady mosh pit all night long.
Tables for mock gambling -- no cash wagers were made -- were set up in the Hub.
All levels of the TSC were packed with people.
A bunch of friends gettin' in on the party.

"Bettors" were given chips when they entered.
