Straight male seeks Bush supporter for fair, physical fight - m4m

That whole draft thing... maybe it wasn't a hoax...: "David M. Miyasato enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve in 1987, served three years of active duty during the first Gulf War and received an honorable discharge in 1991. He remained on inactive status for five more years, until 1996. Since then, the Kaua'i resident has married, started an auto window tinting business and this year, he and his wife had their first child.


But in September, Miyasato received a letter from the Army recalling him to active duty and directing him to report to a military facility in South Carolina on Tuesday.
'I was shocked,' Miyasato said yesterday. 'I never expected to see something like that after being out of the service for 13 years.'
Miyasato is now suing the Secretary of the Army, asking a court to prevent the Army from ordering him to active duty. He is also asking for a court judgment declaring that he fulfilled all his obligations to the military. "

Media Notes Extra: "If you're doing the math, that's seven downers out of the last 10 presidential elections. If you're a history buff, the '04 results also leave the Democrats with their smallest House of Representatives enrollment since 1948, and the smallest Senate contingent since 1930"

Kerry's Discharge Is Questioned by an Ex-JAG Officer - November 1, 2004 - The New York Sun: "A former officer in the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps Reserve has built a case that Senator Kerry was other than honorably discharged from the Navy by 1975, The New York Sun has learned.
The 'honorable discharge' on the Kerry Web site appears to be a Carter administration substitute for an original action expunged from Mr. Kerry's record, according to Mark Sullivan, who retired as a captain in the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps Reserve in 2003 after 33 years of service as a judge advocate. Mr. Sullivan served in the office of the Secretary of the Navy between 1975 and 1977."

My Way News: "Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist disclosed Monday that he's undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for thyroid cancer.
Rehnquist was expected to be on the bench when the court returned from a two-week break. But instead he issued a statement saying 'at the suggestion of my doctors, (I) am continuing to recuperate at home.'
Rehnquist was released from a Maryland hospital last Friday after undergoing surgery to have a tube inserted in his throat to help his breathing.
The court has released no details about his weeklong stay at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, except to say that he had a tracheotomy. The type of thyroid cancer and its severeity have not been disclosed."
