I'm generally an easy-going type (so my friends say), but my blood is really aboil.

I'm generally an easy-going type (so my friends say), but my blood is really aboil. Today I heard on a radio show that there may be up to 150 U.S. forces deserters considering refugee status in Canada. They may be genuine conscientious objectors, but I doubt it. One of the bravest soldiers to be decorated for service in Korea was not a "killer," he was a medic. Surely that option exists for those yellow-bellied quitters who will probably receive more support from Canadian taxpayers than many of our own disabled war veterans. Having vented my spleen, on to other topics.
