    Sheesh. Give me a break. Our men and women are out there facing all sorts of danger so we can live in a freer and safer society, and we can’t give them access to MySpace and YouTube? Talk about misplaced priorities.

    It reminded me of a recent episode of the Simpsons where some old guy is trapped in a burning house after Homer successfully debilitates the entire Springfield Fire Department. (Incidentally, it involved hijinks around sleeping pills and sleep driving, a la Patrick Kennedy.) A reporter asks the guy t if he was concerned that no one was there to save him. He says something to the effect of “Yeah, I know, but at least the gays still can’t marry in this state!”
