News Briefs – Volume IV

News briefs are my collection of interesting news stories that may not warrant a full post…

Brief 1:  It seems like the citizens of Japan want the U.S. out of their country.  The UK Daily Mail reported that thousands of protesters called for the removal of all of the estimated 47,000 U.S. troops.  Apparantly our troops are noisy and pollute as they protect the pacific rim.  I say bring em home.  Why spend our tax dollars to boost the Japanese economy.  There are a lot of communities in the United States that would welcome them and the money they spend.  We also need to take all of our equipment and defense technology too.  While we are at it, we can take them out of Germany too.

That Guy

If you have worked anywhere you have probably run into that guy (or girl) sometime in your career.  Terry was the name (name changed to protect the innocent) of “that guy” at one of my recent jobs.  I would describe him as young, well dressed, very good looking, very personable, great to talk to, funny, a good listener, and someone everybody likes.  Terry started in our sales department.
