The fewer men, the greater share of honour...

I predict, thinking about the previous post, that stories like this are going to spread, be passed around, and become part of our culture.

When I was young, when you thought of selfless volunteers helping out in foreign lands, you thought of JFK, Democrats and the Peace Corps. The popular image of the Republican was someone in a blue blazer at the country club.

I predict that in the not-too-distant future, the image of the volunteer will be something like a young MBA or CPA going to Iraq and Afghanistan, instead of hitting the career fast-track. Republicans, many of them...And gentlemen in England now-a-bed, Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here...
