    You gotta go where the money is, and for military recruiting that's the South and Midwest.

    Didn't you notice the only numbers in your excerpt??

    In New York City, which produced more than 500 military officers a year in the 1950s and early 1960s, the two remaining ROTC programs last year yielded 34 Army officers.

    17 officers per program?? What's the per-head cost there compared to a successful program??

    What we really expect out of the Democrats is for them to treat us as they would liked to have been treated.
