Jen Martinez writes a great Blog about things Military, called A Collection of Thoughts. She’s been in my blogroll forever.

Ed at the Captain’s Quarters links Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) who has ….. …written a detailed rebuttal to Robert Byrd’s argument on the Senate floor earlier this week, when (apart from the abhorrent Nazi analogies) the former Klan recruiter took on the mantle of the protector of minority rights.
