Gone Reading

I have been pretty good so far avoiding spoilers! But to keep it that way I am not going on line from now until I finish Deathly Hollows (which includes not reading my email) and only watching "KNOWN" safe tv shows tonight like, "Dr. Who." (I loved how they refered to HP and book 7 last week).

Anyway... see you when I'm done. I'll also be positng comments on the Pandagon HP, book 7, book club discussion.

See you when I'm done!

Listen to those who've served, for a change! has a post called "Veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan Wars Urges President Bush and Senate Republicans to Change Mission in Iraq".

The audio stream of the address and the text can be found at the link above. The address (Democratic Response) was given by Brandon Friedman, a former infantry officer in the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division and veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was the Democratic radio address this week, and is a must read or must listen to .

You can also listen to the response here:

What is so sad is that it he and other veterans, who oppose this war, will be dismissed or told that they hate America. Just as these veterans at have and the veterans at the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Any vet who opposes this war, whether they be WWII, Korean War, Vietnam, Gulf War I. or our current two wars hears this A charge made by persons who have never served no less.

This exchange between Cindy Sheehan, Chris Vucovich and Vietnam Veterans is very painful to watch. Mr. Vucovich, a man who has never seen the horrors of war with his own eyes, smelled it, or cleaned the remnants of his buddies off of him, launches and lashes out at those who have.
