I hereby grant SECDEF three (3) mulligans

There is a lot to like in how the new SECDEF Ash Carter has kicked off his tour.

If you have been too impatient to do the usual Beltway entrails reading or too busy to look for your bag of bones, then perhaps this might catch your eye to see how the guy thinks.
In a sign of how Carter intends to challenge his commanders’ thinking, he has banned them from making any PowerPoint presentations — a backbone feature of most U.S. military briefings.
"PowerPoint makes us stupid."
- General Mattis, USMC (Ret).
If Mattis approves, Salamander approves.

Take charge and carry out the plan of the day. Oh, and stow that quadchart.
