Scraping Bottom

I'll be the first to admit that Fighter Pilots are not a community of saints. We wouldn't even qualify as reasonably dissipated alcoholic monks. We can get raunchy and maybe even under the  right conditions set records for profanity. But there is a time and a place for such things.

Prime time television isn't that place. At least it shouldn't be.

But we seem to demand it in our entertainment. If we can't descend into middle school scatological commentary about bodily functions, wink-wink, nudge-nudge, then we simply aren't entertained.

The total loss of American sophistication, culture and dignity seem to be proceeding at an accelerating pace.

And isn't it ironic that in the same week we have Steven Tyler, who has indulged his share of Drugs, Sex, and Rock-n-Roll, telling Congress that really there ought to be some boundaries?

Yes, as fighter pilots we could be pretty gross...but we endulged in this juvenile behavior in the privacy of our O club not in the general public. These hollywood types seem to enjoy being stupid in public...probably because they're stupid period.
