Something serious and a pointless sideshow.

The failin’, whalin’, bailin’ Palin saga is very odd. In the end a comic episode happening during much more important and serious events. This sums it up nicely. There are so many places to go on the web, just randomly select one. There must be a (bunch of?) mega-scandal(s) headed down the road, can anyone say, Checkers?

On a serious note, the chief politico responsible for the US activity in Vietnam died yesterday. I have often wandered around the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington DC. My thoughts become quite difficult to describe, and I’ve lost track of time there. This is a piece from Bob Herbert that speaks loudly and importantly. I agree with him, nothing was learned.

There is another moving memorial to Vietnam Veterans, it is at the Midland Airport, in Midland, Texas near the aircraft museum. If you are in the area I encourage you to spend some time here.
