If you heard the sound of spluttering and expletives deleted coming from the general direction of the southern Willamette Valley tonight it was probably me.
The court martial for the soldier accused of being the ring leader behind most of the abuses at Abu Graib started today. I nearly drowned the cat in lukewarm tea when the defense attorney compared the pyramids of prisoners to the pyramids cheerleaders do at ball gaimes.
A squawk of "Jesus, Mary and Joseph" (I was raised a Protestant, but this is very handy when mom is around) followed the comparison of leading these guys around on leashes to the tethers put on small children so they don't wander off in busy public places!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Writng what I was THINKING would probably get me blacklisted off AOL. But it ended with "These guys are in prison.Where exactly are they going to WANDER off to?"
I don't know where this trial is being held. but sombody better either check the water supply or find out what this guy's been sniffing.
