Maybe you have discovered the secret of why democracy survives. Freedom to revolt against the accepted status quo. Youth always revolts until it feels it has found the right way. If liberals can eliminate this fredom we will live under a dictatorship, otherwise change in accepted ideas will continue as it always has adjusting to make a free society the best there is.

Amy Schlesing is doing some great work for the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. She actually knows some of the Arkansas troops stationed over there and doesn't seem to have a gotcha agenda at all. Schlesing's Mothers Day post is really descriptive of how those of us who are left behind feel.

One of the things I found out at the Milblog Conference was just how incredibly difficult the Army has been making it to become an embedded reporter. The dearth of embeds is not totally the fault of the press.

The Army had a rep at Milblog, someone from their Public Affairs branch an we're hopeful that things will change (although all change is slow in the military *grin*)

When we first went into Iraq they made a concerted effort to get reporters embedded - and it was a good thing. I don't know what happened over the years, but now only the most persistent are able to get into an embed spot. And really, how many reporters want to be that persistent - especially if it might get you killed.

My hope is that we get more people like Michael Yon, Bill Roggio, and Amy Schlesing... we need them. In the meantime, we have milbloggers.

*** oh yeah, Tuck and the kitty... soooo cute. *grin*
