I have a friend who's in Afghanistan and won't see his family until May. I feel for him, but I try to chat with him everyday and check in with his wife. My son loves to sleep over at his house and play XBOX with his son. He's getting ready for the snow/sleet/rain which turns the dusty dirt into a muddy mess. I think he's doing okay though.
I've seen a decent amount of outrage about outrage. I'm passionate about the First Amendment. I follow and am passionate about this movie because of that. If you want to minimize that because of comparisons you want to make to other sucky things happening, that's fine, but I'm no idiot.
