Army desertion rate up 80 pct. since ’03

Gentle readers, I take this opportunity to introduce you to a definition from the best dictionary ever written–

AWOL
in the military, a sudden rush of sanity and wisdom; an awakening.

I’m man enough to admit that ain’t one’a mine neither.

I’m also pedantic enough to point out that the AP editor who wrote that headline could have saved 4 characters by changing 80 pct. to 80%, spent the windfall on making sure we knew it was 2003 and not 1903 we were talking about, and still come out ahead.
