Speaking of the U.S. Air Force, it just dumped a general for sending a bunch of rather sweet, if suggestive, e-mails to a married subordinate. For example, “My dear and so beautiful…. On this Valentine’s Day, please know I am thinking of you… I miss you and hope you are happy and well. Much Love, J.”
