Once More Into the Breach

Finding Nonsense and Beating it Sensible

I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Veteran's Day 2007

I do not know who wrote this:

'It is the soldier, not the reporter, who gives us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who allows us to demonstrate.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, and whose coffin is draped with the flag – who allows the protester to do otherwise with the flag."

As for the last line, I have heard a veteran of Vietnam, Delegate Dick Black of Virginia say "Ask any combat veteran and they will tell you that they never fought so someone could burn the flag." but the concept remains, our freedoms are paid for by the blood of those willing to fight for them.
May God Bless our veterans.
