    I saw an interview with Tokyo star olympic gymnast Simone Biles who said that she may try and compete in the singles balance beam competition tomorrow…..She said that she was still dealing with her mental state and stress issues but would try and do her best in the singles competition……While I respect her hard work and ability to jump, twist, flip and land on her feet after a vault landing and do tricks on a balance beam and all but somebody really needs to take young Simone aside and explain to her that real stress is being on a landing craft in rough seas heading towards a beach just praying to live through the day, then seeing the door open and the first half of your squad cut to pieces and having to jump into 12 foot deep water wearing full combat gear trying not to drown so you can somehow make it to the beach and stay alive to make a new plan to get through the day…….Sorry Simone but that’s real deal stress so suck it up and do your job girl because many brave young men died so that there would still be an America for you to represent our Country and Flag………

    She's probably under more stress than I was trying to get to a bunker before a rocket or mortar landed on my head... or years later worried about catching a wingtip as we rolled almost 90 degrees from the wake turbulence of #1 and #2 in a 3-ship MITO of B-52D's on takeoff... peacetime 15 second interval, but Minimum Interval TakeOff... or guiding the pilot of your B-52 down into bad weather and having second thoughts after the turbulence encountered... all peacetime stress... the flying, anyhow.

There was no safe space in the back seat of her car. We didn't have any seat belts, so I developed some good duck n dodge reflexes that have served me well in the corporate world.
    That picture reminds me of how rarely I see folks wearing those foamy cervical collar things nowadays, whereas it wasn't uncommon when I was a boy.
    I think I'll generation-gap myself a bit more from my kids by mentioning the cervical collar thing, as my mom did with us when reminiscing about the many local men in her youth with broken right forearms from incorrectly crank-starting their cars . . .

    Pretty cool deal, like to have one myself. Course what don't I want to have for myself. I'll get them all eventually.
