Well, well, well...maybe my head's been in the sand, but I didn't know George the First abandoned his crew and his plane...do you have a link on that story, atmanbee?
Of course, I wasn't a fan of the father any more than I am of the son!
I've already posted my
on the Media board about CNN making Bush the First their focus on Memorial Day, and I recently posted about Aaron Bank, the Father of the Green Berets, on the Veterans forum, as being my idea of a real hero. Bank died in April at the age of 101. The great majority of Americans don't even recognize his name. AND maybe that's as it should be...REAL heroes don't really want accolades, do they?
As to the two Georges...what's that old adage...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree!
