My referral logs linked me to a prediction I made at Martin Devon's Patio a few months back. Makes me happy that someone noticed I was right.

From a purist's perspective she does not, however, the awards inflation in the Armed services is such that, today, it is an appropriate award. You can dislike the way praise has been inflated, but it doesn't change the fact that, just like the dollar, the awards don't mean what they once did.
