Cluelessness in San Francisco 
I wonder how many soldiers are normally in the 579th Engineer Battalion Company?

Is it commanded by a light captain?

How about those desert camoflage fatigues? Is that a solid green DCU?

"the company's field commander" is a quaint little touch.


This reporter's heart is in the right place. But his word processor is writing checks his fund of information can't cash.

No big deal, if he's got solid editorial support. But apparently there's nobody at the SF Gate newsroom who knows the difference between a battalion and a company, or knows that the U.S. Army hasn't worn "fatigues" since sometime before Grenada.

Now, if journalists can't get this stuff right, how can they be expected to do any kind of analysis? How can they explain context to their readers?

After four years of war, and with a local unit gone for more than a year, can't the SF Gate be bothered to educate itself about this important beat?

Editors, how many veterans do you have in your newsroom?

Splash, out

I was looking for information on , trying to find information
in reguards to the new bankruptcy laws and read your site. Although
not exactly what I needed it caught my attention. Many people get into trouble
with and the new laws may not help them the way they expect. Anyway
thanks for the read.
 
After spending so much time looking for , I just have to
say thanks for the post. A isn't always easy to find
the best information on. Anyway, thanks again.
 
With all the new laws implemented on bankruptcy, I've been reading
about all the latest on and ended up on your site. It's interesting to
see how Big Business supports getting into debt with a and
how the government itself gets farther into debt. Yet no one wants to take
responsiblity for it. (enough ranting) Thanks this was an interesting read.
