Disgusting. I rather doubt that the Marines make the same choices.

    Yoga? That’s bizarre. I presume they still run? I remember running four miles every day, six miles on Saturdays.

    What’s the deal? “… one in five in 2006, up from just 4 percent in 2000” – why mix? Can these reporters not convert one in five to a percentage, or 4 percent to a numbers? It’s muy irritating.

    Interesting that a very high number of volunteers and draftees were rejected during WWII because they had been malnourished during the Depression.
