If you're a purist, you know that "reconnaissance" is a term that is applied to the gathering of information regarding an enemy. Although typically done covertly, it isn't considered espionage since it's carried out by combatants or agents of combatants.
Today started a period of reconnaissance for me, but I really wasn't trying to gather information on enemies. The great thing about being anti-social is that you usually are short on the enemies side of the ledger as you are on the friends side.
Reconnaissance today started with evaluating the prospective daughter-in-law population.
As the first half of an 11 hour roundtrip today, I drove to New York City very early this morning to meet my son's 6 AM flight returning from Israel. He had spent the last 10 days there as part of a great program called "Birthright," which allows college and recent college graduates to make that trip at no cost along with others.
No strings attached.
When I initially dropped him off to begin the trip, I immediately noticed that within his group there seemed to be a very favorable female to male ratio.
Did I mention that all of the girls were Jewish? Did I mention that "favorable" meant many more females.
