This morning I was checking the news on my BB, as I normally do, and I came across a story about HRH Prince Harry being removed from Afghanistan. First thought: wait, what? I thought they weren't gonna let him go to war. Second thought, hmm, sneaky Brits. Third thought, wow, that's kinda cool. Apparently, the British media agreed to keep mum about the young prince going to Afghanistan, but it was leaked in the Aussie press... and by the Drudge Report. Bloody Americans! So, why am I writing about this? It's not about Blacks, it's not about Americans, it's not about music, or even Gossip Girl. It's a slow news day, maybe. Or maybe I'm just trying to come back with a vengeance. I'm not sure. But I know I was slightly impressed by the fact that the boy went. I can't imagine ANY president (or presidential candidate) sending a son off to war. The British may be crazy (this includes my own family living across the pond), but they seem to respect duty and honor. And I respect doing it more than I respect talking about it. Unfortunately for the prince, it looks like he's gonna have trouble creating the glorious military career he seems to be angling for. He's too valuable. By the way, is it just me, or has everyone forgotten about Afghanistan? There's a war going on over there, and yet all we talk about is Iraq, Iran, Iraq, Iraq, Iraq, North Korea. Hmm. ____ Listening to: Coldplay's Parachutes.
