Neighborhood Watch.

There is a corner house for rent at the end of my block here in Centereach Long Island. I noticed it on Tuesday as I turned onto my street after traveling back from Washington. I never knew or saw the person(s) who were livng there as I lived further down the block. What I did notice that they had put up a flagpole and from it flew the Marine flag. It flew all the time and was even lit at night. I last saw it about three weeks ago. On Tuesday as I came home and turned the corner I first noticed the FOR RENT sign on the lawn and then noticed that the flag pole was gone too. Where had the people gone? Was he a Marine reservists called back to Iraq? I just don't know. I hope one day again see that flagpole back flying the Marine Corp flag. At which time I will make a point to thank him for his service. President Bush yesterday gave a speech where he finally started to take the blame for the Iraq war.. That's great George. But, it's people like my neghbor down the street who take the bullets and force of the explosions from the roadside bombs.They are the ones who deserve our thanks and our hope that they get back home soon...

I hope the Marine family are all safe and healthy. There has been too much needless death (both American and Iraqi) over Operation Steal Their Oil. I have always supported the troops, it's the commander-in-chief and his lackeys I have the problem with.
