ACCUMULATING PERIPHERALS


Jim Webb is unbelievably cool without even thinking about it by mattsteinglass

From Jim Webb’s interview with Deborah Solomon in today’s NY Times Magazine:

DS: Do you see yourself as an alpha male?

JW: I don’t sit around and talk about alpha males and bravo males.

Obviously the term “alpha male” refers to animal herd terminology — wolf packs, gorilla tribes — and the correspondent of an “alpha male” is a “beta male”. But Jim Webb is such a super cool ex-military guy that he naturally butchers this as “alpha males and bravo males”, as if it were military radio alphabet code — alpha bravo charlie delta.
