One Man's Abuse

One of the photos getting a great deal of air time shows Lyndie England holding a leash which is attched to an Iraqi prisoner.

I went to Home Depot today where I saw a couple doing their shopping; he wearing a dog collar and leash, she holding the leash handle. The nation is outraged by a photo of a situation this guy chooses.....for buying light bulbs.

Yes, I realize there are far more disturbing images. No, I am not trying to dismiss the mistreatment of the prisoners (though I do believe that we need to accept that the situation is being handled so we can move on and get back to business) I am simply pointing out an interesting contrast.
