The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

(Some of) the kids are alright

From an email sent to, and posted at, Fraters Libertas:

John Kerry recently dismissed his post-Vietnam service slander of his countrymen as murderers, rapists, etc, by saying he was just "a 27 year old kid" when he said those malicious things.

Pat Tillman, at 27 years old, sacrificed a professional football career, millions of dollars, a life of luxury, and his life, to defend his country.

A 27 year old kid.

And now at 60, presumably wiser, John Kerry doesn't even know what's in his garage.

We will always need more Pat Tillmans.

And we will never need even one John Kerry.

Oh, my. Charles, that is so right. Thank you for passing that along.

Rest in Peace, Pat Tillman.

One of the good guys.
