I am tired of this whole 'hero' thing in this country. Everyone is a hero, especially if they are wearing a uniform. Today, I saw an article comparing Justin Beiber to a US Marine. Who do you think the hero was? The Marine of course. He was wearing a uniform. But believe me when I say that anyone who ever served the country in a uniform knows for sure that some soldiers are heroes and some are not. Some are just as twisted as little Beiber.
As a great watcher of weekend golf tournaments I have to marvel that uniformed service members are now holding the golf flags at the 18th hole. Just once I would like to see a member of the Peace Corp be given that honor. But a uniform trumps all.
The big news event in all the media in New Mexico today is the fact that Colorado seems to think it has the best green chile in the world. This is front page news and lead story stuff. Okay, it is humorous and some times that comes first. But while this is the big news I would like to see it followed up with a thorough story on how Colorado is kicking our New Mexican butt on job creation and economic progress. But that would take work on the medias part. Silly me. And it might make the republican Governor and Albuquerque Mayor look less than competent.
