yes, i'd be po'd as well. funny how a saying gets started and is somehow given the status of a universal truth.in a sort of similar vein and also that of the wiccan soldier's widow and her fight to have his faith symbolized in stone along with the others...i know a soldier that served in iraq, might very well be going back, anyway, he and a friend went to visit a shrine being constructed for the troops. the builder of the project was proud that they had included "all" the faiths of the troops. my friend pointed out that there was no symbol for the buddhist faith. the man said, "there are no buddhists in the service, which my friend and his buddy proved wrong as they pulled out their dogtags and showed him.there are all faiths and none and gays and straights and bi and the entire cross section of humanity in the service of our countryit's about time people thought that maybe the fact that foxholes are needed in this world is the problem!
