From the BJF mailbag

My Bud Billy Joe sent this in. 
 No disrespect to Whitney Houston intended whatsoever, but it frames the priorities of the American Media, and many Americans for that matter quite succinctly. 

The death of Whitney Houston is on the news several times a day. She had one of the greatest voices ever!
Then, there are these guys:Justin Allen 23, Brett Linley 29. Matthew Weikert 29. Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Jesse Reed 26, Matthew Johnson 21, Zachary Fisher 24, Brandon King 23, Christopher Goeke 23, and Sheldon Tate 27...These are all Marines that gave their lives for us last month.There is no media for them; not even a mention of their names.
Honor THEM by sending this on.--

  1. I had a most humbling experience on a post about Charlie Sheen's rantfest/pity party, concerning our heroes in Afghanistan. It will take you to your knees when a father of a hero thanks you for mentioning his son and the sacrifice.
