My Kind of woman!!!

Definitely my kinda woman!!

Another perspective on war

To nobody's surprise there were protesters today in DC, they attempted
to disrupt the metro system and block the Key Bridge, a leading artery
into DC from Northern Virginia. I got hosed twice because I come in
from NoVA on the metro and it is raining hard which makes traffic worse
any way. My commute was long and arduous and only caused further
resentment for protesters (but that isn't the point of this thread).
Anyway, I'll get to the point.

I got off the train in Rosslyn because I had to use the bathroom and
the train was moving quite slowly. When I was getting back on the
train, 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 so you could have
the right to stand here and bad mouth your country. And if you touch me
again, I'll stick this umbrella up your * and open it."

I'm glad to report that loud applause broke out among the onlookers and
the young protester was at a total loss for words.
