I am an old hippie. You may or may not have known or guessed that. For some really great stories, and superb writing, you absolutely must try The Hippie Parade written by Singleton. Singleton is the older sister of the Existential Great One Skinny Little Blonde (I don't have to tell you to NEVER buy at car at smart cars, Inc. do I?) so there's this tradition of writing between them.
On Sunday April 6, Raving Black Lunatic wrote a post called "Red, White and Blue Rape" about women in the military being raped. NwG wrote a companion piece to accompany this piece called Semper Fi. Big Man's post references, The Nation, The L.A. Times, and Salon, all reputable sources. I urge you to read these posts.
Until the next time we can talk, I hope you are all well.
