Extensive discussion & many comments follow this article: Town takes hard stance against increased OLF flight operations

My take:

I’m not interested in shutting down the Navy on Whidbey, but it’s time to stop glorifying military service. Lose the macho swagger. Lose the all caps comments, multiple exclamation points, & multiple ellipsis. Lose the group identity speak. Don’t tell us that our rights and freedoms come from people in uniform, or that we wouldn’t be able to post comments on the web if not for military operations in distant lands.
