no we dont.  the whole fleet has been getting new wings since 2007 as well as avionic upgrades.
why ya so harsh of the Hog baby? I aint been hearin no complaints about them in theater workin their magic.

Fine, you can have the last word prior to my post.

I like the A10. I just wonder about the cost of CAS missions. Why not have ground troops self serve their support while pilots do real strike missions. You know the shit that shuts down the enemy ability to keep going.

Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I thought this was a very balanced article on the pros and cons of retiring the A-10:

Yeah, I know. Just like I know that a Mach 3 recce bird that flew at the edge of space wasn't used for CAS.

Who pissed in your cornflakes today? You're more of a bitch than usual.

The Sgt Schultz reference was a nice touch though.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

Maybe some good old fashioned guilt about not turning in a certain overdue review?
