Annals of Poor Word Choices

In today's NW:

"The Air National Guard comes to town and says (to the council), "We are
going to do this anyway so sign on,'" she said. "They told me they have a good
neighbor policy. They want the council to take responsibility for something (the Air National Guard) doesn't want to take the flack for."

(emphsis added)

Saying that anyone serving in the armed forces is unwilling to take flack -- which looks and sounds an awful lot like "flak" to me -- is pretty ridiculous.

Her argument was not logical and extremely weak.

I am glad the council majority approved the Wisconsin Air National Guard training.
