    I lose all respect for pretty much anybody that thinks that everything can be solved with a hug.

    Honestly, I don't even feel sorry that she got shot. The students "peacefully" set fire to the ROTC building on campus and cut the fire hoses when the firefighters tried to put it out, just to make sure it burned to the ground. Those guardsmen were walking into an openly hostile environment. They had every right to feel threatened. I don't blame them for taking a shot.

    I remember watching a video of some interviews immediately after the shooting and a lot of people were saying stuff like "they should've shot sooner" or "they didn't shoot long enough". Although I would've never admitted it at the time (I was in school), deep down, I agreed with that sentiment.

    When Kennedy held a dinner for the founders and bigwigs of NASA he gave the keynote address. He said paraphrased" Never before has the white house dinning room been filled with such an esteemed collection of engineers, scientists, inventors architects and statesmen." Feeling good about themselves Kennedy then went on to burst their bubble. "Except of course when Mr Jefferson dinned alone."

    I would have been honored to have dinned with either of them.

    Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC. Twice awarded the Medal of Honor. The most decorated Marine prior to WWII. A man who despised politicians, civilian or military, and wasn't afraid to say so. He defied the system and exposed corruption and hypocracy. A man who could really think for him self. A Marine I admire.

    My choice as well. He would have ended the "cold war" before it ever got started. Oh to pick his brains.
