A Modest Proposal
July 24, 2008
Arlington National Cemetery, as most of you know, occupies land owned before the Civil War by the family of Robert E. Lee. After Lee resigned his commission in the U.S. Army to fight on the Confederate side, the Federal military brass started using the grounds of the estate to bury the Union dead created by Lee’s generalship.
I propose a portion of King George II’s estate in Crawford be used for the burial of U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq. That way, if there really is an afterlife, we have at least some hope of seeing Bush’s lies come back to haunt him.
