Somewhat tardy (on my part) report from the front from Steve Killgore of Team Browncoat, our local Prescott paintball team.
The Independent and honorable men and women of Team Browncoats excel at Scenario paintball, "holding the high ground" in Prescott Arizona. Our other sponsors for 2009 include Northern Arizona Paintball, Dora Paintball, Q-Loader, Slip2000, Save Phace, Red Dot Paintball, Limb Saver, and Ammo, our favorite energy drink.
I keep trying to let this story fade, but Colbert keeps finding a way to make it news! As you may have heard, it's become a congressional issue since congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) declared his support. Now our own Tucson Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) hit back mocking the whole thing. This of course spurred Colbert, who won the NASA vote by "almost twice as many votes as [she] got to win [her] district in 2006," to insult the city of Tucson in his own unique way saying "You, miss pink sweater set, are just jealous because I'm gonna have a space node, and all you're gonna have is half of Tucson - and not even the good half. I'm kidding. There is no good half."
The congresswoman by the way is married to an astronaut and is an outspoken supporter of NASA. There's no objective reason to believe that "Serenity" is remotely a factor in the argument. Still, astronauts have been known to be Browncoats so I'm gonna do some research and get back to you on that.

So I spent the day playing with the website (sorry to anyone who came by today) and at least one thing people have said would be fun is now a reality. Hopefully I can get a module that'll make it a little easier, but for now Registered Users can go here and start up their own blog right here on AzBrowncoats.org. Social Networking for the win!
