Hmm, I'd like to pay tribute to the whole "recruiting" thing we have going on here and use a quote from an actual job seeker that I heard with my own ears after asking the question "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?"

And I quote "Yes sir, I was convicted of Manslaughter. (pause). But don't worry, it wasn't work related"
In honor of my fellow veterans:

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
