some people just don't know when to shut it
In today's Boston Globe there is an interesting article about the legacy of PFC Jessica Lynch and how she is being/will be treated by the media.
One paragraph jumped out at me:
While Lynch lay in a hospital bed in Germany with fractured arms, legs, and spine, one talk-show host in Boston, Jay Severin - who has never served in the military - wondered if she were being mythologized as a plot by liberals to legitimize women in combat. He also introduced the notion that she might have been the driver, given that the convoy lost its way.
I wonder if Jay Severin has read or seen any of the accounts of what PFC Lynch went through. I am assuming not because, if he did, he would not have used the term "mythologized" to describe her story.
And that last bit, well that's just tasteless.
