Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Begin & Sadat and Benazir Bhutto are great choices. You've also got a couple of mine in Pat Tillman and the Declaration of Independence.

I certainly hope that last one is what courage isn't. That chicken-hawk is only brave enough to shoot his friend in the face.

It was a sad day when Sadat was assassinated - great pick. The others are also worthy of having the honor of being called "Courageous"

Happy "Better Late Than Never" Mute Monday!

Wow. Stories too. Happy Late Late Mute Monday!

Actually, Howie Dean is the Antonym of courage. Who thought it was "hilarious at the time" that he was skiing in Aspen while men-of-honor were fighting in Vietnam.

I guess it was especially "hilarious at the time" because Doctor Dean could have been "wasting his precious time" saving lives in Vietnam.

Cheney didn't fake a knee injury and commit a felony to avoid the draft.

Yep I got Bhutto too. Is it just me or are troops more whiney after WWII?

I guess wars became more political police action types than getting rid of evil.

I visited Gettysburg several years ago, and I was surprised by how much it affected me. Like the ghosts are still hanging around there. . .

And, I'm sure I've mentioned before that a good friend's dad was on the Bataan Death March; one of the fortunate third. . .
