Johnny Spann stood in gently falling snow and wistfully recalled the day his son, CIA officer Johnny Micheal "Mike" Spann, lingered among the tombstones at Arlington National Cemetery, studying each inscription and testing his sister Tanya's patience.

"Mike, let's go," she implored. "They're all the same."

"No, Tanya, they're not," the younger Spann replied. "There are stories behind them."

There are more stories in those graveyards than graves. In time, most will be forgotten, but not what they did.

cs,

I've been "back"; but since this blog had been flagged for about a month by Google as an "Attack Site", I lost the energy to cross-post what I had been putting up at Flopping Aces (not posting every day, but I have been posting- a number of stuff not very pretty for conservatives to read, as I have a different take on the Ground Zero Mosque issue than most conservatives).

This particular post is interesting because It had already been scheduled to post months and months ago. I hadn't even realized there were any new posts up until I saw your comment and Indigo's in my mail box.

Thanks for checking in. I'll try to make my rounds visiting, soon.

I've just been low on energy in the blogosphere, for the most part and no longer visit my regular haunts.

the Gitmo military commission sentenced the 15 yo who killed Spann to time served plus 1 year.
