Loose lips sink ships

Today, we learn that Shirley Sherrod, of the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), was asked to pull over to the side of the road and resign.

Not too long ago, you will remember, General McCrystal resigned over things said in the presence of of a Rolling Stone reporter.

Not to worry, this not unique to employees of the Obama administration. From time to time, bigwigs and politicians speak off the record, only to later learn that nothing is off the record.

And, this is not the first time someone at USDA has been forced out due to vocal indiscretions. Does anyone remember Earl Butts?

COMSEC can and should be practiced by all.
