    Weird how 78 now seems young.

  • GHW Bush (or his office given that he is in the ICU himself) has released a statement regarding the General:

    “Barbara and I mourn the loss of a true American patriot and one of the great military leaders of his generation. A distinguished member of that Long Gray Line hailing from West Point, General Norm Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomized the ‘duty, service, country’ creed that has defended our freedom and seen this great Nation through our most trying international crises. More than that, he was a good and decent man — and a dear friend. Barbara and I send our condolences to his wife Brenda and his wonderful family.”

    Nothing so far from the White House.

        It gets “all wobbly” at the edge of the fiscal cliff…….. Obama must concentrate, concentrate, oncentrate, centrate, trate, te Sorry, couldn’t help myself.

        General Schwarzkopf, our loss is heaven’s gain as the Gen. accepts his greatest promotion. The devil must now fear the amphibious faint concealing the “Hail Mary” armored spearhead of the Lord. Godspeed, Norman!

  • Actually thinking about Gen. Schwarzkopf, yesterday – after going through lots of Desert Storm video. That was sure a case of the right man in the right place at the right time. RIP, General.

    RIP General, and prayers for his family!
