I bet you can guess that I'm not a big fan of the war in Iraq. Hello. But we all know that a lot of the kids (and moms and dads) fighting it wanted to do something good - for us, their families and themselves. And now it sucks for them.
This Memorial Day help them and their families get through it by keeping in touch. You can donate phone cards to the troops at any US Post Office or online. You don't need to agree with the war to be compassionate towards some of those getting screwed by it.
While you're at it, call your Congressman and tell him/her Bush is stupid.
And you definitely deserve one of those fruit tarts from Martha's if you do.
