Wow, I just read your article and half way through I stopped and began thinking about the money already spent on bases and such in Iraq, then I began reading again only to see this point included in your commentary (Hoppe, “Democrats Fiddle, Iraq Burns,” April 4-11).
Are the injured vets also receiving more funding with this bill? Hopefully I am not misinformed about that.
Do you think that the right beat the left to the punch with extremism and now the “left” is forever skewed towards the median, thus forcing issues to moderation?
I have enjoyed the thoughtful commentary columns in NUVO for a while.
Iraq war is beginning to fractionalize public opinion more and more than I ever imagined. I can’t tell what cycle the social fracturing is continuing on.
Prescient commentary deserves a symposium or something.
