Antigunners object to memorial statute
Antigunners in the most literal sense. Michelle Malkin has the story. Navy SEAL Danny P. Dietz won a posthumous Navy Cross for a gun battle against the Taliban. The city of Littleton proposed a statue in his memory -- and people objected because it showed him holding ... a rifle.
"They should be putting up a peace dove instead."
Hat tip to The Bitchgirls.
The thing I liked most about Colorado when I lived there, was that the women seemed completely dissatisfied with their men. I took full advantage of that fact.
Now, that I think about it, that is all Colorado had to recommend it.

Yes they should put up a peace dove, because, after all, that is exactly how we're going to defeat the Taliban and radical terrorists - by showing them peace doves and giving them big hugs and Oreo cookies and teddy bears.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. And enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
-Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
