Cherry Creek Denver CO

Lots of stuff here. Stayed in the Marriott. Ate lunch at the Squealing Pig – a nice Irish pub place a block from the hotel. Walked thru the nice neighborhoods around the country club.

Did They Serve?

Just got forwarded this list of Democrat vs Republican/Right Wing Pundit military service. Kind of demonstrates why the only Republican I trust in any military decision would be John McCain. Unknown accuracy, but if even 20% is wrong both ways, the GOP still looks...
