Found an Andy Rooney editorial via Bunker, and the headline makes my blood boil.

Our soldiers in Iraq aren't heroes:

We must support our soldiers in Iraq because it's our fault they're risking their lives there. However, we should not bestow the mantle of heroism on all of them for simply being where we sent them. Most are victims, not heroes.

As a veteran, he should be ashamed of himself for belittling our servicemembers like that. They're not perfect, but they're all risking their lives so we don't have to. Shame on you, Rooney.


Tim organizes our servicemembers into a fisking. He also invites Rooney to visit the America he lives in.

I'm not positive, but I don't think Andy is a vet. He was correspondent during WW 2 (and came out of it with a pathological hatred of George Patton that took my breath away when I heard him speak of it on a documentary).

Andy Rooney is old and out of touch with reality. Why don't you and Tim (capt. patti) send him a note and a copy of your comments. he even reads them sometimes. Send another one to CBS. It's time they retire that old fart.

My oldest boy, a Marine, left this comment in one of my posts about baby killers:

One time I was asked how I could be a baby killer. I said it wasn't that hard, since they can't really defend themselves...

I'm not sure old Andy could keep up mentally with the guys today, as he approaches senility.

APPROACHES senility? I'd say he passed the threshold a while ago.
