Some people really don't know when to shut up, do they? There's a spate of angry letters to newspapers and networks in outrage against this photo, broadcast on Dan Rather news, of Fallujah warrior Marine Lance Cpl. James Blake Miller, 20, a country boy from Kentucky... and because he's got a smoke in his mouth.
AP reports an interview with Lance Corporal Miller's mother. Her closing sentence and end of the article quotes her saying this:
Webber said her son's decision to join the Marines has changed the way she thinks about America.
"Until my son went into the Marines, I never really realized what that flag stood for - but now I do," she said.
She knows what the flag stands for - the ciggie-obssessed clearly, do not.
