    Brought up Smedley Butler with a guy who was talking about the military. Didn't know it at first, but it turned out his son was going on his third tour of duty. Some people get pretty emotional about their wars...

    Yeah, I kind of said that, but once he thought I was "anti-war", it was all eggshells.
