So Tom stopped by my office on his way to meet friends and asked me what was up with GEN McChrystal. I handed him the Rolling Stones article. He went off to read. When he came back he said -
"It's as if GEN McChrystal and his staff spent the afternoon hanging with "Maggie"* and then went out and thought he could talk like "Maggie"!"
*My name isn't "Maggie" and my family only uses it when they wish to highlight some idea or behavior that is particularly outrageous.
