I Trust Our Generals

I am a regular reader of Momma Said, and usually find her words of wisdom to be welcome reminders of the ‘common sense’ sorely lacking in today’s society. However, the column of February 9 is highly disrespectful to our military leadership. I trust that the leaders of our military branches...
