Go Army?
The new Army recruiting commercials are touching. Like the one where the girl tells her dad that she went out and did something for herself . . . she joined the Army. Shouldn’t he slap her on the forehead and yell, “Haven’t you been watching the news, Beth-Ann? You’re gonna die!”

Seriously, haven’t the two-a-day soldier deaths for the past several months been pretty much one long anti-recruiting commercial? Sure, there are several guys in the Service itchin’ for a fight, but are there any itchin’ to get randomly shot in the head in a Baghdad market, or blown up by a roadside bomb?

I hate that the morale of our Armed Forces is being eroded away, and that they have to be over there.

Being over 25 has never felt so good.
