An email from my Dad. Never know how true these mass emails are, but they are fun to read anyway.

Here's a quote from someone who witnessed a recent
interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC.

"There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.

An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Ma'am, don't you care about the children of Iraq?"

The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my first husband died in France during World War II, my second husband died in Korea, one of my sons died in Vietnam, a Grandson died in Desert Storm, all so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again. I'll stick this umbrella up your ass and open it!"

I've seen that one too. While it's probably fake, I agree that it's a good read.

And if it's true I'm damned glad I'm not related to the old gal. She has some bad luck keeping the men in her life around.
