Oklahoma Grandmother's War Outrage

Yesterday a 79-year old grandmother from Oklahoma City called our office outraged at the extended tour of duty for our "sons and daughters." After a full 20 minutes of scorn and outrage she surmised that it's time for the mothers and grandmothers, the husbands and wives, the sons and daughters to do their duty and rise up and create their own surge, a surge of protest against the war, and against the extension of tours of duty. Two of her 27 grandchildren are Black Hawk helicopter pilots, both safely home, for now. Her view, stop the killing, stop the war. Whoever does that, gets her respect and her vote.
