Out of the Blue

Today is "Super Tuesday," where almost half the states in the country, including mine, will vote in the primary elections. A small percentage of the country has already voted in previous primaries, eliminating a vast majority of candidates. Democracy in action.

Heh, yeah. Not to make light of something so serious, but since you brought it up, I'm now envisioning that victory sound that played in the original CTF when you captured the flag. I could just see the guys raising the flag only to hear da-na-na-na!

The battle for Iwo Jima went on long after the flag was raised, so the victory sound wouldn't have been heard at the same time the flag went up.
