Thoughts, Editorials and More

By Remy Benoit

We open this morning with these words, these thoughts, from az:

you cannot fathom my anger
my disappointment
my sadness
my surprise
so you cannot fathom my forgiveness
my broken
my lost
and so
we are at an impasse
and to you
perhaps
how it is
seems as how it was
and that is your comfort
and it is better for you
this way



Editorials are a way of life here. They express opinions, present a forum for expression of ideas; play an active role in the democratic process.

From the Denver Post:

Caring for vets is our duty.

Denver's squalid VA hospital.

Gonzales on a griddle of his own making.

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself." - Thomas Paine, British writer


"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin, American scholar and statesman


From United Spinal AssociationVets First.

From Waco Texas, a petition Help Save Our VA Hospital.

From Disabled Anmerican Veterans National Survey Shows Strong Support for Veterans' Health Care and Benefits.

From Boston.com and Raja Mishra Amputation rate for US troops twice that of past wars Doctors cite need for prosthetics as more lives saved.
