Did you screw up post #121 by forgetting to put (The Coast Guard is here to serve the citizenry, not the other way round.) in quotes or italics?
That is my statement - a statement of fact, of course - and does not require quotes or italics. Nor does it mean that I think the Coast Guard is somehow not serving the people. Or do you think that when I say "The fry cook's job is to serve french fries," what I really mean is "the fry cook isn't doing his job"?

Gotcha. You were just dodging the question. Cute trick.
