Since these last three responses to the initial Yossarian comment were not circulated to subscribers, I decided to circulate the following for you Catch-22 lovers:

The fact that Yosarian would ask questions about exaggerated threats means that he or she is rational and must be afraid of something, therefore we must continue to pay for more defense. We would be crazy to buy more fighters and sane if we didn't, but if we're sane, then we have to buy more fighters. "That's some budget, that U.S. Defense Budget. It's the best there is."

You must be familiar with Catch-22 of the Air Force procurement code. If a soldier wants to get out of ground combat because he's afraid to fight without close air support, he has to be crazy. But if he asks to be exempted, he can't be crazy, therefore he has to fight. Thus, we don't need the A-10. March 4, 2014 at 5:37 PM Delete
