Delayed Response

I just spent about two hours typing up a new column but, before posting it, I decided it needed more work. So, now I'm two hours behind schedule. Here's just a quick update.

A Special Announcement from SD Bullion

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings and the Allied invasion of France. To commemorate these events, our friends at SD Bullion and are launching a special edition coin series and they've offered one of the proofs to the winner of our newest contest. <Note: This is a public thread and a public contest.>

Sgt. Bergdahl and MOPE

I wanted to weigh in on this immediately, because of my very strong feelings as a former Army officer myself.  I felt it best to wait, and let the anger subside.
