To the Editor:

The arrival of Pope Benedict XVI as pope broke the stigma of a quote that “whoever enters a conclave thinking they will be elected pope, will leave a cardinal.”

What the Pope has to do with the alleged point of this letter escapes my attention. However, we have enough government in our lives, and it hasn't improved our lives any. Mandatory retirement based simply on age has been proven to be erroneous. As for Army service, I saw a lot of good people forced out due to arbitrary rules that only hurt the Army in the larger sense.
