MoBob: an army of one?

Yesterday while wandering around one of the two (!) malls in town I spotted a brochure for linguist army specialists. I figured that would be a cool job for MoBob, were he interested. So I signed him up! Granted, it's pending his immigration status, but what the heck. The jobs he qualifies for as an Arabic/French/English speaker with a BS in physics are:
* human intelligence specialist (ie spy)
* linguist/interpreter/translator
* cryptographer
At least he'll like all the shiny new brochures I've collected on the military.

The mystery of what people in Little Rock are called is finally solved. They are called "Little Rockians." And the City of Little Rock is launching a new campaign to call the city "The Rock."

Another adjustment I've had to make is realizing that I'm the one with the funny accent. So it was interesting to hear an NPR segment on how Bill Clinton's accent emerged during his testy interview with Fox News. And Bill's accent isn't even that thick or strong.

Interesting job prospects! How long do you have to wait for his immigration status to be finalised?

I think it'll be another 3-4 years until he becomes a US citizen. But who knows with someone named "Mohamed," yeah?
