Veteran's Day today.  I think it's something a lot of us take for granted.  I know I do.  But it's the veterans - the guys who raged on the fields of Lexington and Concord during the Revolutionary War, with bullets the size of softballs being blasted into their battle formations; or the guys now being sniped in a desert halfway across the globe in 120 degree heat and stinging sideways sandstorms - who allow me to shuffle around my apartment on an odd Tuesday in November wearing my boxers and robe and watch Maury Povich while I slop around in a big plate of day old chicken fingers.  It is their sacrifice in blood and treasure that is the price of our liberty.  Thank you veterans.
