Nobody Is Above The Law; Some Are Above Civics

From my daily soup of forwards and newsletters:

"Early Friday morning in Austin, Texas, the 21-year-old son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush -- and the nephew of President George W. Bush -- was arrested on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest. According to the Austin American-Statesman, John Ellis Bush was taken to the Travis County Jail, where he was released on his own recognizance.

On Saturday night in western Iraq, a roadside bomb exploded near a U.S. soldier on patrol. According to the Associated Press, the soldier was taken to a U.S. military hospital, where he died of his wounds.

As the man says, we are a nation at war. And when Perry Ellis makes BDUs and Sperry makes combat boots I'm sure we'll see the kids of the powerful pitch right in, even though Iraq is a dry mission.
