Thank you for posting this.

His memorial services was so moving.

Some comments that Senator McCain made at that service:
In our blessed and mostly peaceful society we're not as familiar with courage as we once were. We are obliged to value our blessings, and to pay our debts to those who sacrificed to secure them for us.

They are blood debts we owe to the policemen and firemen who raced into the burning towers that others fled; to the men and women who left for dangerous, distant lands to take the war to our enemies and away from us, and to those who fought in all the wars of our history.

Our country's security doesn't depend on the heroism of every citizen. Nor does our individual happiness depend upon proving ourselves heroic. But we have to be worthy of the sacrifices made on our behalf. We have to love our freedom, not just for the ease or material benefits it provides, not just for the autonomy it guarantees us, but for the goodness it makes possible. We have to love it so much we won't let it be constrained by fear or selfishness. We have to love it as much, even if not as heroically, as Pat Tillman loved it.

While I certainly agree with the sentiment, this particular representation doesn't do a thing for me.

It never occurs to leftist vermin like Rall and Rick Reilly from SI that the only reason they're allowed to publish their Marxist slop is due to heroes like Tillman and all the other servicemen and women before him. They (Rall etal) just don't get it. All the "education" they received was all for naught. They're prime examples of people who have memorized many things, but really never learned anything.

Can't argue with anything you've written. And I share your distaste with the writing of Rick Reilly, also. Reilly is not nearly as bad as Rall (Rall is in a class by himself, thank goodness). But I really don't care for Reilly's writing, and it makes all of SI look tainted to me.

Absolutely! He's posted other cartoons by Samuelson in his Nuze. They are always right on point.

Good cartoon for returning fire to Rall.

The nearly photo-realistic drawing of Rall is pretty amazing.

Actually, Neal stated that the cartoonist was not on his staff, but is a contributor. I know Neal likes to say he is the "Official Cartoonist for the Neal Boortz Show," but he is not on the staff.

I was a subscriber to SI for many years, but I quit more than a decade ago. Two reasons: (1) I simply didn't care as much about sports as I got older and (2) I noticed quite a bit of agenda-driven "journalism" creeping into the pages of a number of sports mags I subscribe including SI. So it was no surprise to me to see the out and out leftist slant of the likes of Reilly take over many sports mags.

From what I've observed many or most of the todays sportswriters are as leftist oriented as their counterparts in the regular media. It stands to reason...leftists hire leftists. Reilly is just another self-absorbed leftist dolt who still thinks it's 1955, McCarthy is persecuting poor, struggling lefties, and the KKK is still lynching blacks and other minorities. The mostly downtrodden underclass of decent Americans can't get a break from the evil white minority who are composed of about five rich guys and a bunch of ignorant, gun-toting goobers for the rest. But Rall is in a class by himself as an enemy of the country with the other members of the far left. Nothing less than. These insects are as dangerous as the Islamo-fascists.

I think Rush has some theories about why sports writers are so often liberal. For me, I've just never been into sports much -- reading about politics and military affairs has always held my interest instead.

Someone at my office drops off SI in the company mens rooms -- that's the only reason I've ever seen Reilly's work, and I'm happy if that's the only exposure I have to the guy!

I don't know what Rall's deal is -- it's hard to believe he's as evil as he pretends to be. I'd rather suspect that he's just a stupid clown trying to shock people.

While awaiting "WE WERE SOLDIERS" principle Mrs. JULIE MOORE's Alabama funeral procession arrival to the Ft. Benning GA Post Cemetary on April 22, 2004...

...I drove by the U.S. Army Ranger School where PAT TILLMAN trained to fight for the Freedom of others.

I said a Prayer there for GOD's Will to be done with his life, while he fought for the Freedom of others in Afghanistan.
This was at about 11:30 am Eastern Time that day.

After Mrs. MOORE's Burial Service and giving my loving support to her now adult kids at the MOORE Family Reception, I then flew home to the West Coast on the Red Eye.

I awoke the next morning to the news that PAT TILLMAN had been killed in a firefight at about 7:30 pm the previous night, Afghanistan Time.

A quick check of the world's Time Zones on the Internet showed that PAT TILLMAN had been in the firefight of his life about the same time I was praying for him at Ft. Benning GA.

GOD is Good.
