David Tindell replied to John Muir's discussion When Is the time to talk about gun control? in the group The Great Debate
"Why is it that when a drunk driver kills someone, we blame the driver not the car, and when a terrorist bombs a building, we blame the terrorist not the bomb, but when a nut grabs a gun and shoots people, people start jumping up and down about gun…"

David Tindell replied to David R.'s discussion Women in the military in the group The Great Debate
" I have no problem with women being in the military and holding down whatever job they can qualify for, as long as standards are not lowered one bit. If I'm in the infantry and have to call in air support or artillery, I don't give a…"

David Tindell replied to Errol R. Alger's discussion The Seventh Decade in the group Men Over 50
" I will be turning 59 in a few weeks, so my seventh decade is not that far away. There are some things about this age I do not like, and you probably know what they are. But there are others that I like, and will like better as time goes on. I…"

David Tindell replied to Braeden's discussion Military Fiction in the group Armchair Generals
" The works of WEB Griffin are very popular, although sometimes they can get too soap opera-ish for me. Plus, Griffin's writing style takes some getting used to. The best military series I've read is David Poyer's Dan Lenson…"

David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
" I should also add that I continue with martial arts training. A couple months ago I was awarded a black belt in ryukudo kobujutsu, the study of Okinawan weaponry. My wife joined me in this training early in 2010 with no previous experience,…"

David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
" Four days after hitting 58, I participated in my first TRX class in several months. Taught by a fit and very attractive young blonde gal (with my wife in attendance I keep eyes front), I made it through and will come back for more."

David Tindell replied to Ed Deerly's discussion Women our age.... in the group Men Over 50
" I think it's both. Look at a recent pic of 60-year-old Christie Brinkley and that proves the latter. My wife doesn't have access to all the things Brinkley does to stay fit and look young, but she does a great job with what she has…"

" Today I hit the big 58. I can remember my grandfather at 58, when I was a junior in high school. Somehow this does not compute."

David Tindell replied to Carl Monster's discussion Semper Virilus for those 50 and over in the group Men Over 50
"  Trust me, my young manhood was far from ideal. It was only in my mid-30s that I emerged from a tough divorce and, thanks in large part to a great woman who became my wife, began turning things around. Had I stayed single it would've been…"

Thanks for your comment. I can't tell you how many students never make it past three or four classes because it's boring learning kihon, or they find out they're not going to become kung fu theater-like acrobats.

Poem I wrote the night before I overdosed in 2010. No title, just talks about heartbreak, suicide, and sadness.

Oh fair maidenDo you sing to the sea like I cry to the moonWith a heart of sorrow and tales of blueTears streaming like banners beneath a midnight skyAching pains which never die?Do you stare with eyes red like your flushed cheeksDo you whisper her name like I choke on yours for weeksDo you taste the thousand regrets and lies on your tongueLike whiskey burning with the fury of the sun? Does time fly past you like little birdsDoes nothing ever sparkle, even the prettiest of wordsDo you scratch…See More
