No photographs, just memories

With apologies to Upper Darby's own Jim Croce

No photographs, just memories

Those who forget history are destined to repeat it

I'm recognizing a theme here (one which I'll take up again on Friday)

President Obama was dead to rights on Osama Bin Laden, and he deserves a debt of gratitude (after we subtract the 90% we owe to the Navy Seals and our Intelligence apparatus...and with a big nod to GWB and Alberto Gonzalez)

But as I was saying, Michelle's husband hit several home runs this week, including his most recent decision not to release the photos of O'Sodden Bin Laden's lifeless shell.

And that's because we want to avoid the dog and pony show occasioned by our improvident and highly political release of the Abu Ghraib photos, which were obviously disseminated by people who cared more about their ACLU cards than about the safety of our military and citizens living abroad.

So bravo, Mr. President.  Keep this up and I'm going to have very little to write about in the upcoming weeks.  Darn.
