My day yesterday was emotionally draining to say the least. It started with a phone call from a friend about the death of a very young girl who is a single mom, and went downhill from there...
So...to be blunt...I got nothing.
So I decided to leave this post open (in Mudville Gazette fashion) for anything: stories, rants, recommendations or advice.... whatever is on your mind... or just links to posts you wrote or that someone else wrote and you want everyone to see... Be shameless and link away. Throughout the day I will try to move the links & blurbs from the comments to the post...
*UPDATE*: (OK, so it's hard for me to just sit back --My name is ALa and I am a control freak...)
DICK DURBIN 'REGRETS' GITMO STATEMENT:
"I have learned from my statement that historical parallels can be misused and misunderstood," said the Illinois senator. "I sincerely regret if what I said caused anyone to misunderstand my true feelings: our soldiers around the world and their families at home deserve our respect, admiration and total support." (source)
Do you think this statement would have come without the BLOGSTORM of wrath?
The LINKS BEGIN:
Barb links with: Recruiter to be Interviewed on NPR
Barb also recommends: Blackfive's 'Marine Recruiter And the MSM Part Two'
Gribbit (from Stop the ACLU!) posted: Oh My God, Not The Military Recruiters!
The Military and the MSM:
H2SO4 Links with: Winning Hearts and Minds and wants to know if he is a "paranoid wacko", or if he "just leans heavily to the right"...?
~Jen~ submits: The National Guard Experience with the Golden Rules of care packages. And anyone with young children that is forced to watch PBS will apprciate the Boobah post on the same site, and Beef Jerky for Dummies (I think it's safe to assume that ~Jen~ really likes this site! LOL)
