I haven't been posting lately. The next-to-last post was too depressing for me to handle, coming as it did after several reports about the increase in suicides among our returning servicemen.
It does no good to hate Bush and Rumsfeld (which I do) nor to have contempt for Congress (which I do).
Nor to wonder why so many Americans driving around with SUPPORT THE TROOPS stuck to the bumper of their cars don't raise a stink about our failure to do so.
Maybe, in our heart of hearts, we know it's a phony slogan. That our so-called support is like the rope that supports the hanging man.
