A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

An Army of the Dead?


This might more appropriately belong over at the Zombie Blog (Zombie BlogS--who knew?).

The US Army, desperate for more cannon fodd--sorry--recruits (possibly in advance of some anticipated surge in requirements?), has been sending out cheery little letters to ex-servicepeople saying, in essence "Iraq--See it again, for the first time!"

Unfortunately, some of the recipients of those letters enjoyed it so much that they're currently unavailable.

To paraphrase John Kerry: How do you ask a man to be the first man to rise from his grave for a mistake?

Sorry--for mistake, substitute goddam lie.

They've now said that they're going to be mailing out apologies to all the families who got "dear dead person, please consider active service" letters. Nice. As if those families are going to be opening any mail from the Army from now on.

I saw the news reports. My first reaction was, "These are the people who decide who is and is not a terrorist?"
