Really? What are we teaching our youth these days? From an NPR story about children coping with war losses, Dakota Givens, a 10 years old who's father was killed in Iraq, said: "The bullies at my school would pick on me all the time and say, 'Your dad was a pussy. He died for no . . . reason.'"

The audio commentary on the story page puts this into a bit of context, when he mentions that it's other kids who's fathers are being deployed. I can see this as a bit of a coping mechanism, but Jesus . . . ripping into someone who's father has died serving our country is somehow seen as acceptable behavior?!?!
