ME: You look awful happy today, Grammy. What’s up?

GRAMMY: Did you see the paper this morning? Looks like they finally did something about those noisy brats on the corner bus stop. You can bet your ass there won’t be any more trouble with that guy around.

ME: Grammy, that’s not here. That’s in Iraq.

GRAMMY: Iraq? Where that Obama guy is?

ME: No, Grammy. It’s Osama. And he’s in Afghanistan.

GRAMMY: You just said it was Iraq?

ME: The picture’s Iraq. Osama’s in Afghanistan. Obama’s in the White House. He’s the President.

GRAMMY: Obama-Osama! Who the hell cares? I just want to know if those hell-hounds at the bus stop are going to be taken care of!

ME: (sigh) Yes, Grammy. The kids at the bus stop will start behaving better. I’m sure that man will see to it.

GRAMMY: Hmmm. I don’t know. They are smiling. They should have given that guy a bigger gun.

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Oh, Barbara, I love that picture. Not only are the little girls laughing, but look at the grin on the soldier. All of them are laughing at the absurdity of the whole damn war. What a joke--a dirty, lousy, in-poor-taste joke-- the whole war has been.

That's what I liked about the picture. Here's this big scary looking guy with a gun, and they're all smiling. That picture probably would have been a lot different if there had been adults standing there.
