The colonists who founded the United States Marine Corps in Tun Tavern 239 years ago certainly understood their demographic. The launch of the USMC in a Philadelphia bar makes sense in a way that the founding of NAMBLA in an old church does not. This weekend, I spoke as the guest of honor to Marines celebrating their birthday. Sure enough, there was a bar in the room--it is as it was. Read my column @ the American Spectator on one of the few good men who elevated the title "Marine."
