Coloring Books

I waited overnight to post this, hoping my ire would subside. COL Hank put a little context into it yesterday, but honestly it stills pisses me off.

In case you haven’t heard it’s THIS– „VMI, Famed Military Academy, Giving Cadets Coloring Books for Stress.“

VMI ought to be the one place in the nation, even above and beyond the service academies, that is fully and wholly resistant to the re-juvenilization of America’s young adults. This is a disgrace, and now a public disgrace; whoever was responsible ought to pay a price for it. VMI ought to be mocking things like that, instead of joining in.

Oh, and in case you might need it, here’s the contact info for the Board of Visitors


(And thanks to Ragnar and TW’79 who, among others, wrote in about it.)

    Stress relief used to be sliding into class formation before the bugle stopped. I am disappointed that this is looked at as viable relief for these men and women. On one hand it is pretty funny, however whomever thinks this is a good idea needs to do some research to validate the idea.
    I would have rather colored than attend a sweat party, of course. But I would go to the party rather than hear about coloring the rest of my life from my BR’s.

    Evidently we are all wrong. It wasn’t a coloring book, but a coloring page. – Ragnar
