General Krulak said, when he was Commandant of the Marine Corps, every year, starting about a week before Christmas, he and his wife would bake hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Christmas cookies. They would package them in small bundles. Then on Christmas day, he would load his vehicle. At about 4 a.m., General Krulak would drive himself to every Marine guard post in the Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore area and deliver a small package of Christmas cookies to whatever Marines were pulling guard duty that day. He said that one year, he had gone down to Quantico as one of his stops to deliver Christmas cookies to the Marines on guard duty. He went to the command center and gave a package to the lance corporal who was on duty. He asked, “Who's the officer of the day?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it's Brigadier General Mattis.” And General Krulak said, “No, no, no. I know who General Mattis is. I mean, who's the officer of the day today, Christmas day?”
The lance corporal, feeling a little anxious, said, “Sir, it is Brigadier General Mattis.” General Krulak said that, about that time, he spotted in the back room a cot, or a daybed. He said, “No, Lance Corporal. Who slept in that bed last night?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it was Brigadier General Mattis.”
About that time, General Krulak said that General Mattis came in, in a duty uniform with a sword, and General Krulak said, “Jim, what are you doing here on Christmas day? Why do you have duty?” General Mattis told him that the young officer who was scheduled to have duty on Christmas day had a family, and General Mattis decided it was better for the young officer to spend Christmas Day with his family, and so he chose to have duty on Christmas Day. General Krulak said, “That's the kind of officer that Jim Mattis is.”
On a related note, I read the transcript of what Hamilton Brandon Victor Dixon said on behalf of the cast, and didn't think he was rude or confrontational at all. To the contrary, he actually tried to quell some of the boos coming from the audience so I agree with him when he said he has nothing to apologize for. If anything, I tip my hat to the guy... he had the chance to bend the VP2B's ear and he took it. Nicely done. And I am 99% sure that if Donald Tweets had not gotten involved, this would be a non issue by now. But I will say it's more than a little hypocritical to lecture about rights and responsibilities, when you haven't bothered to wander into a voting booth in 10 years. In the end, for every person who wants to boycott Hamilton because of the Pence uproar, there will be another person wanting to see Hamilton because of the Pence uproar, so in the end I'll just have a coke.
By far, the most important tool when cooking is a good knife and the knife skills to properly use it, which will come in handy for everything from chopping onions to dicing potatoes. Because it is used so frequently, a good kitchen knife's value is easily overlooked. So if the carving job you did on your Thanksgiving turkey resulted in a botched bird, perhaps you need some new kitchen knives to help you get better results. This chef's knife appears to be very well balanced, so maybe I'll look into picking one up before Thanksgiving. Any ideas where I can get one?
In spite of their name, the Florida panther is actually a type of cougar that lives in Southern Florida. Thanks to poaching and car accidents, there as little as 160 left, so to see them lead this list of creatures on the endangered species list, kind of hits home.
