Memorial Day,

and Bush is signing a measure (constitutionally challenged, of course) to prevent protesters from disrupting military funerals . I wonder why we can't go after the real culprit. What is it that makes Fred Phelps of the so called Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka Kansas untouchable? Phelps and his family cult travel the country flogging their old testament gay bashing. Remember them at Matthew Shepard's funeral with their "God Hates Fags" signs. Now they've been haunting military funerals. Reminds me that nobody looked into Vernon Howell untill the UPS driver complained because hand grenades were falling out of his packages.
I read that Phelps has a pack of lawyers, but I think that Washington has plenty of smart guys who would probably to hang Phelp's scalp on their lance if they got the signal; but when our president has to speak in code to turn out his wacko base, his handlers are too chicken to be alienatin' any church folk. Hell, this bunch could be working for Dobson?!

I saw a spate of feel good stories about mangled Iraq war veterans this Memorial Day. While I was inspired by their individual spirit, I can't help but notice some major spin going on here. What's inspiring about thousands of young people coming home with missing limbs, brain damage and rattled phsyche's? These are casualties of war, and unlike the dead, the pain of the wounded lingers for a lifetime, and leaves entire families shouldering a major burden.
