We’ve all heard of corrupt gamblers in precarious positions of authority when their addiction got out of hand, and when their addiction got out of hand, there’s no doubt that a sheriff who steals collection plates and raises money for the books can and will do desperate things. When I first learned that the two-star U.S. general responsible for the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile had been suspended for gambling, a shudder came down my spine. A few days later, I breathed a sigh of relief when I found out that he was in debt to the ledger and that he had used a counterfeit gambling chip in the casino, not that he might throw a game to keep his legs. 온라인경마
Reuters should really pay a little more attention to their headlines. Today’s headline read, “U.S. Major General Oversight Nuclear Missile Launch: Official.” WTF? Major General was overseeing the missile to be fired. Who was fired at? When? Why? Did you put your finger on the button? No, the commander with his finger on the trigger is now fired. No missiles were fired. Don’t scare me like that. Thank you!
