Valerie Jarrett Commits Faux Pas At 'Fancy Dinner!'
Four-star Army Gen. Peter Chiarelli -- the No. 2 general in the U.S. Army -- says he is absolutely not offended that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett mistook him for a waiter at a fancy Washington dinner this week and asked him for a glass of wine. [...]
"It was an honest mistake that ANYONE could have made. She was sitting, I was standing and walking behind her and all she saw were the two stripes on my pants which were almost identical to the waiters pants -- REALLY. She apologized and will come to the house for dinner if a date can be worked out in March," Chiarelli wrote in an e-mail.
It's troubling that our generals think they should USE THE CAPS LOCK to make their points. It's a TERRIBLE crutch that really begins to GRATE on your READERS and ACTUALLY ends up DILUTING the point you are TRYING to make. Also: sometimes you should use apostrophes.
But anyway: Isn't it kooky when something that's not among the most mundane events in our crushing human existence happens in D.C.? [CNN]
