Whoda thunkit?

Holy moly, did y'all hear about this?

Not really sure I could name any songs either have done. Might be able to get kinda close with one or two, and I'm reasonably sure I could point out a song or three if I heard 'em, but that's not what gets me about this story.

What really sticks out to me after hearing about his outburst at her award reception is,

WTF, Over.

When I was in Iraq we had, on occasion, the odd journalist or two posted at our FOB. Officially, we were to extend every courtesy, if asked. We were instructed to provide non-sensitive information if questioned and, for even a suggestion of uncertainty, to professionally and politely refer them to our chain of command, blah, blah, blah.

Unofficially, the word got out that they were to be regarded in the highest of suspicion.

We went with the unofficial word.

This is a pretty good representation of why.



Condolences go out, of course, to the families of the translator and the soldier.
