    I suspect that our men/women of the military are a little more mature than you are giving them credit for...and BTW...I never found most of Shakespeare's comedys all that funny, except for Merchant of Venice.

    I guess fratboy antics aren't allowed in the military.

    I would hope that our military men/women have more maturity levels than that of a fratboy...when we are putting them in charge of the type of weaponry we employ. Just sayin.....

    Naw, it's the Navy; they were too busy having gay sex to pay attention to the video.

    In this case a video camera.

Making this video, to me, wasn't enough to convince me that he's not a good commander. Losing his command over this was too draconian and it's just unfortunate that a, by all accounts, good officer will always be remembered now for something so stupid.
    Yup, and I'm not sure stupid is something I really want higher up in the chain of command. I'd hope that perhaps when people are ready and willing to lead that they'd leave stupid at home. And, BTW, who the hell makes videos these days and doesn't expect it to end up on the internet. Before you take any video or picture you should ask yourself "Am I ok with this being on the internet?".

    So then you are agreeing that the only thing this man should be supervising is a video camera? Thank you for proving my point.

    Actually, they're not. That's the reason that their commander must be.

    You're dreadfully mistaken. Just speaking from experience.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that.
