Heroes & Villains

We watched the memorial service for Pat Tillman yesterday and were left wondering, `what makes a guy like that tick?' We're still pondering that question.
Then, when we read about the abuses of prisoners in Iraq at the hands of American servicemen, in the same prison where Saddam Hussein did much of his dirty business, we concluded that the Pat Tillmans of the U.S. Armed Forces won't be remembered by the world at large, which will, instead, remember the dirty dogs who dishonored their country and their fallen comrades.
Meanwhile, the US Army announced today that we no longer will put hoods on Iraqi prisoners and just use blindfolds. Holy crap, that's terrific. Howsabout not torturing them now?
