    or Courtland Milloy, two gentlemen whose viewpoints I found so indistinguishable that I refer to them as CM. Some years ago, there was a debate raging about "the moral place of JROTC in a young person's life." CM even had a retired admiral weigh in (against JROTC), which CM felt was simply indoctrinating young black men to fight the white man's wars. I rolled my eyes and said, "Yeah, perish forfend a teenager should learn pride, teamwork, respect for authority, etc." CM seems to think that the armed forces are jackbooted thugs (I'm sure he had something pithy to say about the photo of the soldier who isn't actually pointing a gun at the wailing Elian Gonzales)...but let this country be attacked, and I'd bet a steak dinner that CM would be shrieking for the armed forces to protect him. And servicemen, black or white or anything in between, would put themselves in danger to shield him.
