Richard is my tribute to people who plan military conflicts, but have never been in one.
Why does anyone writing for SG:A think we want to see a character like that onscreen, anyway? How about someone who plans military conflicts and knows exactly what the ramifications are? There's only one place for a character like Woolsey to go - to face his frak-ups and get a clue - but that's so boringly obvious that I hardly can look forward to seeing it.
The last thing I want to do when I turn on the TV is spend time with idiots I feel nothing but contempt for. I do that all day at work.
