On a darker note
In keeping with the byline of the site..."just stuff we talk about..." Here's a little food for thought. Normally, i'm not much given to politics or even world affairs for that matter, other than the occasional link to Milblogs such as Blackfive or some such. One of my daily reads has an interesting follow-up today to a previous post of one of her relatives fighting in Iraq. Her story reminds me of another blog i read this morning, and forces me to consider, "You know, i wonder what those soldiers of ours think of stuff like this?" I'm not being alarmist here but it is definitely cause for enough concern to at least look into the validity of the article. I mean, as previously noted, i am from the South. I can't imagine that the silent majority of conservative America is that far removed from handling these people ourselves, or worse, duped into thinking, "Oh the Gubment, knows, they'll take care of us if it gets out of hand". Apparently, its already out of hand.
