Odd Conversation

I was down at my army base on friday and I was telling this Colonel who I am friends with that I am going on a short vacation to Istanbul and Israel. When I mentioned Israel, he got this really uncomfortable look on his face and started lecturing me about being careful and what to avoid, etc. I was then thinking that he is fully prepared to send me to Iraq, where there is real violence, yet he is unsure that I can handle myself in a Jerusalem Bar.

I think he's not completely nuts, though. When chillin' at Mike's Place or Bonkers Bagels, you won't be packin', nor will you have a unit of trained folks watching your back, nor will you be in uniform. At best, you'll be drunk and floppy.
