"We're like zombies. There's no stopping us. Or maybe it's as P.J. O'Rourke says. All kids have a drive to shock their parents.

Especially in the US Marine Corps, so you can come home and tell them you like the doctrine of "every man a rifleman." -- Scholar Dave Hardy, commenting on the Boston Globe story about 19-year-old Stephen Scherer, a young man who was just named to the U.S. Olympic shooting team, and who grew up in a gun-hating family.
