Not that tough

June 27, 2009

I'm sorry that Bill Dwyre had to camp out on Long Island for five days or more to report on a golf tournament. But shame on Bill and his editors for making reference to that as the Bataan Death March, a World War II Japanese atrocity that killed thousands of Filipino and American prisoners of war.

Incidentally, would the media please refrain from calling athletes who never faced real danger or sacrifice for their country "courageous"?
