Paratrooper press conference

Four of the friends of Sgt. Sergio Sanchez held a press conference yesterday to add more details of his April 12 murder outside a Fayetteville night club, reports the Fayetteville Observer today.
Sanchez had stepped out of the night club and was talking to his girl friend when he happened upon a robbery in which some other soldiers were beaten and had their wallets stolen. Sanchez was the designated driver for his friends that night. He was approached by several armed men. He put his arms in the air and someone shot him in the back of the neck with a 12-guage shotgun. His girl friend heard everything over his cell phone. He died a week later and police are looking for suspects.

In the U.S., when bad men do bad things for money, we call them criminals.

In Baghdad, when bad men do bad things for money, we call them terrorists.

Some days, to me, it all sounds alike.

In America, when some otherwise good men do bad things for money, we call them politicians.

If you've never read "A Clockwork Orange", I recommend it.
While a bit bizzare, and difficult to follow at times, it seems to predict what is happening in society today.

IDad, A clockwork Orange is my Dad's fav movie (NOt my fav!!)

ADad, that poor lady. She'll relive that conversation for the rest of her life, God be with her.

MM The movie was more than bizzare.
I couldn't follow what was happening.
The book was much better.
I hated the movie.
