Patriotism is a Magnet

Tom Tomorrow writes compellingly of the loss of military lives:

Speaking of which…I have no doubt that Cindy Sheehan–who has paid the biggest price a parent can pay–will continue to be attacked by people who think they’re doing all they can by putting ribbon magnets on their SUVs. (And isn’t that ultimately the pefect metaphor for this war and its supporters? Think about it: it’s a magnet. Peel it off and it’s as if it was never there. You can support the troops and not even risk the slightest damage to the finish of your car. That’s real commitment.)
