I've recently developed a taste for Texas Holdem Poker. Psychology is very important in the game. Ever wonder if temperament and personality are acquired or bred?
My new friend Larry Carlin is proving to be a boon intellectual companion. I am thankful to Larry for this opinion piece by novelist E.L Doctorow. Upon my return from Vietnam as a young Lieutenant in 1967, I was assigned to work as Survivor Assistance Officer at the Presidio of San Francisco. Each day, more likely night, I would receive notification of military remains returning to the Bay Area. After assigning someone of like or higher rank to notify the GI's next-of-kin, I would go out the next day with a driver and visit the family. I was required to discus Military Funerals and GI Insurance. I would then attend two to three funerals a week. Needless to say, the following piece resonates in me. Please press on the link for the full text.
