For a minute there I thought it was going to be for outing the communists on the street. I should have known better... ;-)
Thanks for posting this. It’s about time something good happened for our vets even if it’s been by way of WaPo.
There’s a Pulitzer Prize for Polemics?................
You mean the articles that equated peeling paint to bad health care?
I wonder if it’s ever occurred to the libs that trashing government provided health care is inconsistent with the rest of their message?
Why would the WP get credit for a 1992 movie staring Kiefer Sutherland & Ray Liotta:
Article 99 (1992)
A group of doctors in a veteran’s hospital must contend with their hopeless situation: too many patients and not enough beds. The main cause of their problems is bureaucratic belt-tightening by the hospital administrators. The doctors are determined to give the best service they can, even if that means defying the orders of management and performing unauthorized operations.
What? Al Gore didn’t write anything this past year?

From what I understand, the article was about the building where the vets who had been discharged from the hospital were housed until they got their orders.
Of course, they were focusing on a non-story inside while the biggest story was right at the front gate. Nitwits.
Yeah that peeling paint was the only reason the commanding officer, a Major General, was relieved of command. (rolls eyes)
