A real lesson

I just saw on TV that the Amish folks in Pennsylvania allowed the wife of the murderer to come to the funeral. Because " they belive it is a gift to receive forgiveness, and then to pass it on". So while Pat Roberston and others will be decrying the whole demise of America theme, these folks are moving on. (Without cellphones......).

There is a lesson in there somewhere. For us, and for those who think they are better than us. You know who you are....................

Which reminds me. I am about 1/3 of the way through Woodward's book. Stayed in this evening and read it. (Which is idiocy itself considering that I am in Hawaii.........). For Navy folks out there, the whole first section of the book is devoted to how Richard Meyers became the CJCS and not Vern Clark. There is an air of unreality to the story.........I can't picture him saying the things that are quoted. Anybody got any inside dirt?

Can't figure out which would have been worse: Vern as CJCS or 6 years of him trying to get the Little Crappy Ship and giving the Navy FRP..................If Woodward is to be believed, option 1 might have been better because Rummy ignored the service chiefs anyway.................
