May all three of them rest in peace!

A theism, a theism, my kingdom for a theism!"

As you know, I happen to think the old ones are the best.

A friend and fellow hasher...

Brian... I learnt a lot from you during our years of talking. Thank you for that.

Civil Engineers deal with an amazing amount of very complicated things.

"Normals" don't appreciate just how much thought goes into everything around us.

General Raymond Odierno
Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Raymond T. Odierno, a retired Army general who commanded American and coalition forces in Iraq at the height of the war and capped a 39-year career by serving as the Army's chief of staff, has died, his family said Saturday. He was 67.

"The general died after a brave battle with cancer; his death was not related to COVID," a family statement said. "There are no other details to share at this time. His family is grateful for the concern and asks for privacy."

Odierno died Friday; the family declined to say where. It said funeral and interment information was not yet available.

He was the one who shaved Stephen Colbert's head in June 2009, on orders from President Obama.

Banisadr, in a 2008 interview with the Voice of America on the 29th anniversary of the revolution, claimed that Khomeini was directly responsible for the violence originated from the Muslim world and that the promises Khomeini made in exile were broken after the revolution.[27] In July 2009, Banisadr publicly denounced the Iranian government's conduct after the disputed presidential election: "Khamenei ordered the fraud in the presidential elections and the ensuing crackdown on protesters.".[28] He said the government was "holding on to power solely by means of violence and terror" and accused its leaders of amassing wealth for themselves, to the detriment of other Iranians.[28]

In published articles on the 2009 Iranian presidential election protests, he ascribed the unusually open political climate before the election to the government's great need to prove its legitimacy.[29] He also said the government had lost all legitimacy.[30] The spontaneous uprising had cost the government its political legitimacy, and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's threats led to the violent crackdown, which cost the government its religious legitimacy.[30]
Don't know much about him, but he seemed to always have a smile etched on his face.
