Joint, the new magic word

At least in the armed services.  We have a Joint Strike Fighter, a joint combat pistol, joint this, joint that, all in the name of interservice cooperation.
   Now the TV is calling the traditional and long standing Andrews Air Force Base by the new name of Joint Base Andrews.  That's a new one on me.  Wonder when that started.  And who started it.
   Anyhow they put on a pretty good show for the Pope's arrival.  Obama and family and Biden were on the ramp to greet the pope.  There are few visitors so important that the president goes out to the airfield to greet them.  Anyhow, the Pope should have gotten the impression that the Americans are glad to see him.
