"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

sigh.

Should we be glad that the Army is doing something about poor conditions in some facilities at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, or should we be depressed that it took a series of Washington Post articles about the problem over the weekend to get them to do something?

I think I choose "both."

My airport shuttle stopped at Walter Reed one day this summer. We dropped off a soldier from Fort Campbell who'd been injured in Iraq, and a friend from his unit who was there to help him get around. It was sad. This war is so awful. What are we doing to an entire generation of young soldiers?
