"Let Him Tend to the Graves"

How should the President of the War on Terror spend his days after January 20, 2009? Chicago Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper writes:
What should he do with himself?

Alice Collins of Oak Lawn (IL) has an idea.

"Three hundred and sixty-five days a year, in the wind and snow of winter and the heat and humidity of summer, let him tend to the graves of the almost 4,000 men and women who have given their lives in the debacle of Iraq. They honored their oaths, obeyed their commander-in-chief and sacrificed their lives of promise to a lying, unprincipled warmonger.

"He can begin at the grave of my grandson, Lcpl Jonathan W. Collins, killed in action on 8/8/2004."


Marine Lance Cpl. Jonathan Collins of Crystal Lake (IL) was killed by enemy fire in the Al Anbar province of Iraq in the summer of 2004. He was 19.

Thanks for the mention, Shimmy.

After Bush cares for Lance Corporal Collin's grave, he can go to Arlington National Cemetery, Section 60, to care for the 400+ graves of young men & women who are buried there because they were killed in Bush's wars. My son, 1Lt Ken Ballard was the 89th soldier who was buried in Section 60, who was killed in the "Global War on Terror".

Bush will be very busy, with 3849 US casualties from Iraq as of today, and I can't think of a better retirement job for him.
