For John, BLUF: A contest. Win a gin flask. Nothing to see here; just move along.
HURRY, TIME IS SHORT!
Over at the new blog, War on the Rocks, there is a contest to best define the American War of War in 25 words or less.
This originated with Dr. Scott Stephenson of the Command and General Staff College, who challenged his student with this problem. From there it was ripped off by something known as the warlord loop and from there to WOTR.
Deadline is 8 PM tonight. PhD Candidate Ryan Evans, the poster, says 8 PM EST, but I am betting he meant Eastern Daylight Savings Time.
Sorry for the late notice.
