In Chicago, on Public Television, there used to be this show called "The
90's", sort of a composition of interesting home videos sent in by people with
There was this one video interview of this former Army Officer (the rank
escapes me, I think it was Capt.) who was a decorated Vietnam Vet. He was
standing outside of the church in Kennebunkport that the Bush's attend. The
Episcopalian church, funny I forget the Shrub's exact religion at the moment,
in Kennebunkport. Anyhow, my grammar is shot at 4am. Scary....Bad.
He told the story of how he tried to get up during the part of the service
where the parish can request prayers of their own choosing. He wanted the
church to say a prayer for the civilians of Iraq who would be (this was the
Sunday after the ground war started) caught and killed in the war. He was
shouted down and dragged out by the SS (Secret not being the operative word in
this scenario) and whisked to the local jail to sit tight.
I never thought a former director of the CIA could get unelected. Makes you
think about taking democracy seriously again, if only for an instant.
