    That Others May Live

    Recently, conservative commenator Bryan Fischer complained of the "feminization" of the Congressional Medal of Honor. What he means is that it has been awarded more frequently to those who save lives in combat rather than those who solely kill people and break things.

    If Mr. Fischer thinks that those who specialize in saving lives in combat is "feminine," I'd recommend that he go hang with the USAF PJs for a while. Since I know that he wouldn't last through one day of the training those guys go through, I'd instead recommend he see The Conscientious Objector, a great documentary about Desmond Doss, a Seventh Day Adventist Conscientious Objector who served as a Medic in the Pacific Theater during WWII.
