an article on celebrities

Check out this thoughtful little piece on celebrities and their support -- or lack thereof -- of the military. I completely agree with this writer's thoughts.

Rowan's grandparents are coming to town this weekend. But before I close up shop for the next few days, could anyone tell me what happened during the last five minutes of CSI: Las Vegas last night?!? We had a power outage and missed the very end!

Celebrities feel compelled to give their opinion on just about every public issue, but I'm not really interested in listening - I don't really care what they think generally speaking.

On the other hand, I'm not sure I completely agree with everything the writer said. She's leaving out Vietnam and the many changes that have occured in the 60 years since WWII. And there is nothing wrong with speaking out against an administration - we all do it. And there's a difference between speaking out against an administration or war vs. speaking out against a solider. It's completely different - a solider has an obligation whether or not they agree with the administration. They made a choice to join the military, not start the war. And this war isn't WWII - opinions change because events change. Maybe I should just continue on my own blog about this. :)

Oh yeah, and it's the government, not celebrities, that determine the salaries that go to the soliders. Although I agree with the writer that the soliders are shamefully underpaid.

A much-healed, quite alive Nick went to the prison to pay a dissatisfying visit to the girl there. (I missed the first hour, so that's the best I can do.)
