'New Mammal' 

Over on the BBC website there's a story of the discovery of a previously undescribed mammal species (NOT a new mammal; sorry, creationists! Maybe next time.)

THIS is why they don't let Marines be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs 

Heh heh. General Peter Pace became the first US Marine in the 230 year history of the Corps to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. The post of top general in the US military had traditionally been rotated amongst the Army, Navy and Air Force.

This may help explain why. Here's a quote from a video clip of a recent press conference:
General Pace: "It is absolutely the responsibility of every U.S. service member, if they see inhumane treatment being conducted, to intervene to stop it."

Rumsfeld: "But I don't think you mean they have an obligation to physically stop it; it's to report it."

General Pace: "If they are physically present when inhumane treatment is taking place, sir, they have an obligation to try to stop it."

You can promote him all you want, Rummy, he's still a Marine.
