JAMES WILKERSON FORCED TO RETIRE AT ONE GRADE LESS - FIGHTER PILOT WHO HAD EARLIER CONVICTION OVERTURNED BY LTG CRAIG
FRANKLIN - FOUND TO HAVE FATHERED CHILD
OUT OF WEDLOCK SOME YEARS AGO - NOW "MAJ" WILKERSON - TO RETIRE IN DISGRACE

Once in a while, even we get it wrong.

When Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin rattled feminist cages by over-turning the court-martial conviction of his buddy, LTC James Wilkerson, we were one of the few out there who applauded and said "good for him."

We'd seen too many "he said-she said" cases, where the male gets hammered because of political-correctness, and thought this was one of those.

But we're happy to say "mea culpa" and commend the final result in the case, after it was proven that the adulterous light colonel fighter jock had fathered a child out of wedlock prior to his latest incident of trying to have sex with a woman not his wife.

HIS PAST CATCHES UP WITH HIM

Wilkerson had done three months behind bars after his conviction. Some folks who hated him from the days when he was the I.G. at Aviano air base in Italy, wanted his head on a platter at that time. We thought it was a possible travesty of justice.

But with confirmation that Wilkerson couldn't keep it in his pants before his latest trouble with the females, shows us he deserves to be booted from the Air Force, and lose a grade as well.

So, instead of getting a full colonel's chicken wings to wear, the bad-boy lieutenant colonel will go out the door as a major. That will lighten his retirement pay by at least $500 a month.

For once, we were in error coming too quickly to his defense, and we want to congratulate those who dug deeper than we to find out the real culprit in this case.

Lt. Gen. Franklin might be thinking of packing it in, himself. He's got plenty of egg all over his face.
