Come on, Air Force, do better than this. SAC deserves better. Hell, for that matter, so does Cyber Command, whatever that is.

Update: If you’re wondering why I care, besides the fact that it’s slipshod, lazy, and rude, my dad was SAC (Strategic Air Command–bombers, tankers, and a few other arms) during his 20-year tour as an air force pilot. “Peace is Our Profession” was SAC’s motto. My dad and his KC-135 and B-52 buddies finished it “…Nuclear War is Just a Hobby.”

Update x2: “…so does Cyber Command, whatever that is.” See? I knew I liked John Noonan. Sounds to me like some people are too busy worrying about their patch, too cheap to pay a designer to make them a non-plagiarized one, and have their priorities a bit out of wack.

Like That “Diversity” a Little Less When It’s Engineered in Front of Your Face, Do Ya?

Some of the Obama crowd sees Diversity in Action:

While the crowd was indeed diverse, some students at the event questioned the practices of Mrs. Obama’s event coordinators, who handpicked the crowd sitting behind Mrs. Obama. The Tartan’s correspondents observed one event coordinator say to another, “Get me more white people, we need more white people.” To an Asian girl sitting in the back row, one coordinator said, “We’re moving you, sorry. It’s going to look so pretty, though.”

“I didn’t know they would say, ‘We need a white person here,’ ” said attendee and senior psychology major Shayna Watson, who sat in the crowd behind Mrs. Obama. “I understood they would want a show of diversity, but to pick up people and to reseat them, I didn’t know it would be so outright.”
