Former Israeli naval commando

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to spend the day in New York City with a former Israeli naval commando and his wife. Not only did we visit the World Trade Center site, but he somehow managed to score three U. S. Navy SEAL Team 6 baseball hats, one of which is now in my possession. I am in admiration of the real warriors, and more fully realize that as a writer, I am merely the Ned Buntline reporting on the true Buffalo Bill Codys of the world. Admittedly, the analogy is flawed, because Buffalo Bill was a showman, and the men I idolize today are absolute-real-McCoy heroes who willingly put everything on the line, not for money and not for fame. As nearly as I can tell, they were simply foreordained and put on this earth to keep the lights on for the rest of us. Ooh-rah you guys.

If you see a fellow in the airport tomorrow who is wearing a SEAL Team 6 hat, it could be me.

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
