Once drones over US skies become plentiful, I expect a rich market for "Not Engaged in Combat" hats, wrist bands, t-shirts, etc. Read below the fold...

I have to go wrestle with RSS and add (I hope) some keen new functionality but it is not merely my obligation but my pleasure to sticky a New Year's post.... A wish I shared with a friend was for less chairoscuro, meaning a bit less contrast between bright light and dark shadow:
