Another interesting editorial.

An interesting op-ed is up on the NYTimes about the alleged militarization of the citizens of the United States. I found some of the historical allusions a bit tenuous (and disclaimer: As I read this to CPT Dick, he kept interrupting me to tell me that it was bullshit), but the whole thing about the Marine salutes got me. If Eisenhower, a decorated General, would not receive a salute once he became President, why does Bush deserve it? Is this something that should continue?

So how about it, folks? Do you think that the term "commander in chief" has been taken too far and used against us?
