Why Jenna Bush and her sister aren't in Iraq
We pass along this photo and sentiment from Rox Populi:
Jenna Bush, daughter of the president, is asked in Time magazine:
If the war in Iraq is so noble, why aren't you and your sister serving our country there?
"I understand that point, but there are many ways to serve our country, and I think my skills are better suited for teaching and representing the U.S. in Latin America through UNICEF. I respect the men and women of our country who are over there fighting. It is an unbelievably selfless thing to do. But if people really thought about it, they would know it's not even a practical question."
One Sunday a month or so, we take the kids to the Santa Monica pier.
