For his most recent essay Fred Reed used the same picture from Abu Ghraib prison that I did for the recent blog "Your tax dollars at work". My photo was better reproduced than his, but the writing pales in comparison to Fred's distinctive style of incisive prose. His essay is a warning to kids about the heavy costs of ever being a soldier.
A war is a politician's toy, but your wheelchair is forever. If you want adventure, try the fishing fleet in Alaska.
Think about it.
A current hero Fred Reed is. A southern fried ball of libertarian angst. A beaconing light in the encroaching dimness. Fred moved to Mexico. I may does foller.
