They fought and died for our freedom, but all we ended up with was free dumb.

1. The Tomb of the Unknown needs some replacement marble.
2. Man buys some replacement marble from the same quarry used to get original.
3. Man offers the piece of marble to the government.
4. Government says, "No thank-you, your price is way too low"
5. I make fun of government.

Anyway, read the article

Big Noize

Tongiht we all here at FOB Falcon got a special treat. The band Big Noize (Joe Lynn Turner of Rainbow and Deep Purple, Carlos Cavaso of Quiet Riot, Phil Soussan of Ozzies band, and Simon Wright on drums on load from ACDC played for almost two hours in a free concert. Those old bastards can still pump out the rock! The youngest member of the band is 53 and the oldest is 63 now. I don't know what it says for me that I knew the words to all their songs....but hey. I got some great photos and video. I will post some of the video as soon as I can shrink it to a size that will upload in something less than three months, but to tide you over here is a pic of Carlos Cavaso in a true guitar hero pose!
