Christmas Card List + 1 + 9

Someone needs to receive a Christmas Card from you... My step-nephew-in-law, Michael (got that?) sent me a note this morning that I must pass on...

"This morning on the FOX morning news/talk show, there was a story about Col. Ollie North and Col. Hunt (both members of the FOX news staff) visiting wounded US mil service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. They were talking to a recently wounded in Iraq Marine, a Joshua Sparling, who is recovering/re-hab'ing. On a wall next to the young Marines bed was a single card that said something akin to "die Marine".....

Some anti-war and anti-US military puke had sent this Marine an "I hope you die" get well card. It was the only card that this brave kid had received. True to form, he put it on the wall next to his bed as an inspiration to recover, rehab and get back to his unit and USMC buds.

Both the Colonels and the FOX news people thought this brave kid was an inspiration and certainly deserving better than a one time "go die" card....

Very likely written by a liberal democrat........

So, FOX put out his name and address at Walter Reed so he can get some Get Well Cards...... Bet you a $100 that his Xmas stocking is going to be overrun with cards and another $100 that he shares them with the other WIA's at Walter Reed. If there was ever a reason to go out and by a card this is it......Send it on to everyone you know. "

Go here for the Fox news story. Good Lord! What is wrong with people. My worst enemy, the one person on this planet that I truly can say I detest, loathe, even hate... I do not wish death upon... [big sigh]

Go send this man a card... NOW (please)!!!

Michael, thanks for bringing this to my attention. (Yet another Michael in my life... I know...)

Also... I typically don't blog this much throughout the week... Sunday is the only day I have made a personal commitment to blog (hence the name...Sunday Morning... blah blah blah...) Remind me later that I need to do a rant about how ignorant we are in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area when it comes to snow... good freaking grief....

Update: Here are other wounded troops that could use some words of encouragement

Capt. James Ollinger
Sgt. Zavian Simspon
Specialist Brian Radke
Specialist Jason Braase
Sgt. David Nevins
Sgt. Jose Ramos
Cpl. Todd Bishop
