The Pentagon announced earlier in the week that an extension of the Guard presence — 2,149 troops — had not been requested.

2. I am often appalled

at journalists writing, grammar, wording and spelling. I'm sure most journalists have college degrees in Journalism and a minor in English....But whether it is on TV, Newspaper, Internet, etc etc etc it would be hard to believe it...........

National Guard mission to provide security ending at capitol.............WHAT??????????? Written by Associated Press???????

How about:

Sorry, but it drives me nuts, especially since I was never able to pursue a "higher education".....
