A better Air University video

A reader sends along a video, which is indeed better than the previous one I flagged, from the Air War College.

A reader sends along this video, which is indeed better than the previous one I flagged, from the Air University.

But he also includes a comment about my “complaining” a lot about the University’s Air War College. That bothers me. I am a hard-working taxpayer, and I have the right to see that my money is spent wisely. And if I believe it isn’t, I think I have the right, and perhaps the obligation, to speak up. The sense of entitlement is sending up a long plume from Maxwell AFB — a mildly toxic one, I suspect.
