Alvin, you are correct and my apologies to GENERAL Powell. When I typed that, I had just gotten off the phone with my cousin who is a retired Air Force Col. and I guess I had Col. on my mind. I misspoke or rather miss typed

Colin Powell retired a 4 star General, not a Colonel. The demotion is inappropriate regardless of your political opinions.

"We can all have opinions, but they don't count. " Your opinion counts when you vote. If you're a Democrat, your vote probably counts more than once.
