Sins of omission

WASHINGTON -- Among the many rules I grew up with, two stand out. The first was never call someone a liar, which was considered the worst possible character indictment one could issue. The accuser had best be prepared to fight or be fleet of foot.

Gender and age won out on the uniform; however, the loser would be first to hold granddad's Marine KA-BAR knife. Of course, capturing this on a cell phone was quickly requested and answered.
