"boy" - not hardly.

It's just a nickname. He's 30 today.

Vindaloo for us tonight!

So it wasn't so long ago that our government was spitting nails about Al-Jazeera's decision to show footage of American POWs, as an exploitation/a cruelty/a violation of the Geneva Convention?

So how come we see that same damn footage on ABC, CBS, and NBC every single time the subject of POWs comes remotely close to coming up? Isn't it worse on an American network where their families are much more likely to see it?

But on the un-diss side, I have renewed appreciation for Ted Koppel, who is not sitting on his 60-something ass in the studio doing "investigative" phoners, he's THERE, sunburned, sleep-deprived and grimy, and starting to babble about toilet paper and baby wipes and folding chairs with a hole in the seat (TMI! TMI!). Another *thwack* to the chickenhawks who rule us.
