    Was threatening myself with a diary titled: Thanks for Veterans Lip Service Day. I started the day with a hearing aired on C-SPAN. Typical stuff, career Veteran's care bureaucratic heads extolling their own department's virtues, concerned politico asks why we still have these persistent issues (no one says problem anymore), excuses, rationalizations and promises ensue, herring adjourned.

    Then it was MSM's turn for the hand wringing. More highlighted and sensationalized "we are doing a disservice" pieces. But it's into primetime time now, so back to your regularly scheduled BS.

    Save this diary, it'll be just as salient next year as it would have been last year. And there will still be vets sleeping under the overpasses they risked their lives to defend. Still debilitated by the nightmares they were rewarded with and get to keep as tribute from a "grateful nation".

    /rant have to go sit by a campfire and try to chill the cynicism.
