When he stops being a general

Actually ran into someone at work today who thought Petraeus was still on active duty. All this "General this" and "General that" ... part of the worship of the military, I guess. At any rate, it made me think of this song from White Christmas:

Nowadays I guess the answer is "slap him into a consulting or government job, stat, and pay him lots of money..."

Oh, yes.

Generals, and even colonels, have a pretty good pick of very well-paying jobs when they leave the military, especially if they have ever worked in an office managing a large contract.
