Worth Noticing

This piece of military news from Afghanistan:
It was an unusual job even for the Seabees, the U.S. Navy’s construction forces trained to hold a hammer in one hand and a Beretta M9 in the other.
First, the team selected to build barracks high in the mountains of Afghanistan consisted of eight women, who are all stationed at Naval Base Ventura County. And second, the women completed the job far ahead of schedule.
I have promised myself (and you, my erudite readers) more good news and less the usual kind of wallowing in all the misery.

We shall see how it goes.
