"Honest mistake", my ass (http://instapundit.com/archives/016671.php)

"Honest mistake", my ass

I used to, some jobs back, work with classified documents. It is Not Possible to make "honest mistakes" like this.

People go to prison, and not "club fed", for "mistakes" like this. Not threatened, not some ignored clause in one's security agreement, they really get locked up in grey cages for this sort of thing.

For the sake and the respect and the honor of all the people who respect their security oath, I want his hide. If he thinks he did the "right thing" anyway, good for him. But civil disobedience is not a "get out of jail free" card, nor should it be.

(And dont start with me about Joseph Wilson and his wife. They both flat out lied about their little trip to Africa, and their "investigations" there.)

Gym. Session 159 of 164. Back, shoulders, triceps.

A very heavy and intense day.

Collapse )

This wass a LOT of exercises, and a lot to pack into an hour, and none of them were light or easy. By the end of the session, I was having to take 2 minute breathers, resting flat on my back on a bench, between sets. But I didn't puke, I didn't fail, and I didn't quit.

I wish I was better at infusing that numbered list of exercise names with the sensation of actually doing them feels like.

(no subject)

I seem to have put a knot in my back last night. I could feel it grinding around in the gym this afternoon, and now it's like a stone right to the side of my upper spine. Ug.

Here is hoping the melatonin pill puts me out for the night.
