    I'd like it to be more solemn, actually.  More respectful of the lives lost.

    That's not because I believe in the cult of heroes.  Or in the missions in warplaces like Vietnam or Iraq or Afghanistan.  But I direct my beef with thse missions to those folks who pull the levers of power.

    The folks -- on all sides of these wars -- who die, I try to remember.
