A wide ranging commentary and dialogue
on the media, politics, today's headlines and the popular culture. Always fresh and new every day!
What a glorious 2:30, ruined by the last minute. Where was the outrage in 2001 when that asshole stood on the flag? Why now?And why attack a US Senator, and ask him to stand up for you, to validate a political point? Where's the outrage at all of Chicago? Why use the sacrifice of the military; why use the picture of the boy that lost a parent; why use the flag we served under to lift up my spirit, and then to let it down by dragging it into political bullshit?If you respect the flag, salute it; stand in silence as it passes; reflect on what it means. No soldier I have stood with, no child I have seen has ever watched Old Glory pass and thought of Bill Ayers. So to the people who created it: thank you for the 2:30, because it touched me, as it did when I first swore my pledge to protect it. And up yours for the last minute, for using it to score a point that has a shelf life of 1 day.
