    Something I keep thinking about ...
    Last weekend, I was at the gym, and a news show was on one of the TVs. In this news show, some pundit (Democrat, I'm sure) was complaining at the Iraq government is going on vacation for the entire month of August. They're adjourning. Apparently, Bush's response was, "well, it's really hot there in August, sometimes 118 degrees." [Oops, I found it in print, it's actually 130 degrees. See the story here.]

    To which another person responded - and our soldiers? who aren't in a government building in summer attire, but rather in the streets, lugging pounds upon pounds of equipment, and likely wearing masks as well as uniforms? Can they, too, adjourn for the summer "b/c it's hot"?

    Every time I hear a story about Iraq since I saw that segment, I picture some poor young boy sweating to DEATH in a uniform and a mask, lugging guns and equipment all over the place, hoping he doesn't get shot ... in 130 degree weather.

    That is all.
