Jay, only a misunderstanding of what I was trying to say could be construed as "pitiful and tasteless." My point was that Belau's words remind *us* that what we do here in these spaces, our little rants and partisan squabbles, are insignificant compared to the efforts and sacrifices put forth by our troops. Happy belated Veteran's Day.

I went to Marty McGadfly's blog to leave a comment...it's more complicated to post a comment than it's worth...I'll put it here instead:

I thought I'd be one of the very, very few people to ever comment on your blog and tell you, I thought your comment regarding the poem on MY blog (Furst Draft, Postbulletin.com), was pitiful and tasteless. In the future, please don't bother.

As we should be, Marty. All who put their "trite words and rants" in print are doing what they can with what they have to not only show their gratitude and respect but to draw attention to the sacrifice made by the countless men and women who serve.

I am humbled and unworthy. We are so much more grateful for those who put their lives on the line than for those who put their trite words and rants in letters to the editors.
