To see the evil and the good


* When you read the following article, if you decide to do so, judge not the VA crisis hotline worker, or the VA police, or the U.S. Attorney's office who decided to prosecute, or the FBI agents who swarmed this man and his wife when they were picking up their little boy. Most of all, don't judge the service member for saying the wrong thing.

Instead, judge yourself. Judge us. Judge us for banging the constant drumbeat for war and more war. Judge us for wreaking havoc in the world. Judge us for our misguided desire to heal the world's ills. Judge us for creating a whole new set of ills of our own, which most of us just ignore, if we even bother to find out about them.

* Army combat veteran’s call for help lands him in jail.

* He got probation.

* Without hiding. You must help me if you can. (Doctor my eyes, Jackson Browne.)
