- "Any Contradiction Here?," highlights the fact that two military regulations are in direct conflict when it comes to how recruiters promote the use of the military's aptitude test (the ASVAB) in high schools: one says recruiters must not propose that schools make it mandatory, the other says that recruiters should request it.
