Memorial Day musings

   By Marion Delgado at 6:30 AM

You know, I was drinking a "Pina Colada Chaos" Raging Cow, my favorite of its five outrageous flavors, and contemplating the sacrifices of our troops, many of whom have served more than 5 months in Iraq. The fruits of all our soldiers' efforts are clearly visible in the streets of Kirkuk today. There is very little trash in the streets, many more people in the markets and shops, and children have returned to school. This is all evidence that the work they are doing as a battalion and as American soldiers is bettering the lives of Kirkuk's citizens. I am proud of the work we are doing there in Iraq and I hope all of our readers are as well. I was also thinking of the low price, stability, security, and tremendous variety of software available for the Windows Longhorn system, which is out now as a demo for developers and which will, God willng, be ready for consumer use when many of our troops return.

Truly, we live in a God blessed nation with proven GOP leadership.

I am having a very American Memorial day, and I know the soldiers we have lost in the past would have wanted us to drink Raging Cow, use only Longhorn (I'm a convert - after I left the Macintosh, I was up and running on XP Pro in one day, Boy Scouts' Honor - it's true!), and support this democratic effort in Iraq. I also feel it's a nice gesture if we can join our fallen dead by getting into fatal car accidents over the Memorial Day weekend, but, as we say in net lingo, YMMV (your mileage may vary).
