Today, George W. Bush lay the traditional wreath at the Tomb Of the Unknowns because empty gestures are easy. Bush is about thirty-odd years too late in acknowledging the brutality of Vietnam and I can't help but wonder if it will take thirty more years for him to face up to the unamed--if not completely unknown-- dead of his own war.

Today the New York Times ran letters written by some of the fallen soldiers. I wonder if they made it past the White House "Bad News" filter. If he read them would he feel even the tiniest bit of remorse?

Somehow I doubt it.
