      congrats on your great diary, psychodrew!

      I enjoyed it, a bit of humor helps with all the Christie hoopla loopah.

      For our fallen solders who come home from Afghanistan to Dover AF mortuary, "God bless the cause of "The Good War" for which they died" - As if any war can be called Good in its 13th year, America's longest war.

        our government really invests is are in the death and mayhem industry.

        Thanks, it was a fun and silly diary, for the most part. But I did feel bad that so many other really substantive diaries got ignored while mine got attention. I honestly expected that it would be ignored beyond a tiny number of friends who would make a couple dozen silly comments as it slid down the recent list. Apparently, I put my finger on something.

          You certainly did and in a good way, to the chagrin of many, it seems.

          I think given all the Christie news, not just here, but everywhere, that I need a bit of a break from it which I took today. So he may well have resigned already, for all I know.

          Now if you could write a diary about building an anti-war movement that would create that much attention, one that might get us all out in the streets........

          writing war diaries is a lonely endeavor ;)
