Yet another important historical figure passes away.
I have vivid memories of the coup that ousted Ferdinand Marcos, and how Aquino's presidency was seen as revenge, of sorts, for her husband's assassination. Marcos subsequent exile in the United States never made much sense to me.
We all have ways of coping. I use sex and awesomeness.
That's not the point...the point is that when the U.S. holds themself to a higher standard and fall well short of it as in this case, even if it's just a few out-there memebers of the military, it reflects badly on all of them. Bad apples and whatnot.
