Post Memorial day news: the military have a much higher rate of foreclosures than the average. They have worse pay than the average. And Bush is going to veto the bill passed by the Senate that will give full educational benefits to soldiers who survive the meat grinder in Iraq and aren't insane. Of course, going to school while homeless is a problem. Ask Vietnam vets. Also, the Economist praises the cruel system for lending money in Japan. It never ceases to astonish me how stupid some editors are. And in Washington, DC, protestors from last year who tried to shame the Supreme Court into upholding the Constitution go on trial. They want Gitmo closed and the Supreme Court believes that this is the Soviet Union.
