The comments were quite an insult for this old boy. America is about great people doing great things everywhere. Get a life? Get a Job? More petty hate and jealousy. I know, get an education. In your two cases, I am positive you will benefit.

Attn: John Murray - Take the flag off your head and read the news. You old story is just that ... Old! America's about apathy and collateral damage, the killing of inocent women and children all over the world. You thing the World Trade Center 3,000 was bad? How many innocents have we killed?
