Busy, Busy, BUSY!

Sorry for the light posting this week but the new quarter started on Monday of this week and I'm taking four classes this time around:

  • ECE 107 - Electromagnetism
  • ECE 108 - Digital Circuits
  • ECE 171A - Linear Control System Theory (this is the first of my depth courses)
  • MATH 187 - Intro to Cryptography
(You can get the course descriptions here.)

So with this new schedule, not to mention dialysis and family, it might be that I'll be light on posting throughout the week and probably doing it mainly on Fridays and/or the weekends.

Berger to Plead Guilty to Taking Classified Material

WASHINGTON — Former national security adviser Sandy Berger will plead guilty to taking classified material from the National Archives, a misdemeanor, the Justice Department said Thursday.

Berger is expected to appear in federal court in Washington on Friday, said Justice spokesman Bryan Sierra.

Yeah....honest mistake when you jam multiple pages down your pants.

Medal of Honor Award


Medal of Honor to Be Awarded to Soldier Killed in Iraq

WASHINGTON, March 29 - Sgt. First Class Paul R. Smith, killed nearly two years ago defending his vastly outnumbered Army unit in a fierce battle with elite Iraqi troops for control of Baghdad's airport, will receive the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military award, administration officials said Tuesday.


Sergeant Smith led a defense of a compound next to the airport against a much larger force of Special Republican Guard troops, manning a heavy machine gun, repeatedly firing and reloading three times before he was mortally wounded. Fellow soldiers said his actions killed 20 to 50 Iraqis, allowed wounded American soldiers to be evacuated, and saved an aid station and perhaps 100 lives.

Sergeant Smith's "extraordinary heroism and uncommon valor without regard to his own life in order to save others are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service," a draft of the medal citation says.

President Bush will present the award to Sergeant Smith's widow and children at a White House ceremony on Monday, the second anniversary of the airport battle and the soldier's death.

RIP Johnnie Cochran

Smack your head, Johnnie is dead:

Famed Atty Johnnie Cochran Dies

(CBS/AP) Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who became a legal superstar after helping clear O.J. Simpson during a sensational murder trial in which he uttered the famous quote "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit," died Tuesday. He was 67.

Cochran died of a brain tumor at his home in Los Angeles, his family said.

Rest in Peace Johnnie.

Pablo *patooey!* Charged

It would seem that Pablo *patooey!* Paredes, the sailor that decided to leave the Navy before his contract was up, has now been formally charged by the Navy:

Charges filed against anti-war sailor

Petty Officer 3rd Class Pablo E. Paredes decided to protest the Iraq war by not sailing with his ship when it left San Diego Harbor on Dec. 6.

Yesterday, the Navy decided to charge Paredes, 23, with being absent without leave and missing movement, charges that could send him to military prison for as long as a year and limit his employment options.

The action by the Navy surprised Paredes, who made headlines and drew supporters and critics with his stance.

"I showed up at the base expecting to hear whether the local Navy command had approved my conscientious objector status. Instead I was read the charges against," said Paredes, who is on temporary duty at Naval Base San Diego.

Surprised!? You are such a freakin MORON if you thought they'd just forget about your Pablo. Here is where the payback comes into play: brig time, loss of most of your pay while you're in the brig, and a Big Conduct Discharge.

Smash has a lot more to say about Pablo *patooey!* being 'surprised' and has relevant thoughts on your bleak future.

Here's hoping that you get the living crap crushed out of you at court martial....

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.
