We are dedicating the Top Ten list this year (and, possibly, in future years) to the passing of it’s creator Col (ret) Dwight H. Sullivan, USMC. In passing from the blogosphere to the bureaucrosphere he’s likely gotten an education on the subtleties of vetting his previously unvarnished opinions shared on these pages, so we dedicate this list to the memory of some of his greatest posts.
Like last year, we’d like to give our readers a chance to suggest their Top Ten . . . so that we can ignore your comments and come up with our own list. Just kidding, of course. Like prior years most of our readers’ suggestions will likely end up on our list. Hopefully that won’t dampen the debate over our final list, as that discussion has yielded some priceless commentary in prior years (see e.g. here and here). So start leaving your Top Ten suggestions in the comments now.
