Our Unbiazed Reporters

If I hadn't read this story on these interwebs, I'm thinking I never would have heard about it.
So from the Washington Post, via Ray's Coffee Break:
Soldier Earns Silver Star for Her Role in Defeating Ambush

Friday, June 17, 2005; Page A21 Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester fought her way through an enemy ambush south of Baghdad, killing three insurgents with her M-4 rifle to save fellow soldiers' lives -- and yesterday became the first woman since World War II to win the Silver Star medal for valor in combat.
Funny how she got about one millimeter of coverage as compared to the 10 miles Jessica Lynch got for wrecking a truck.

You're exactly right. People want tot hear about some "chick" screwing up in the military, acknowledging a woman as a war hero, is still too difficult for too many. Sad.

Oh, shit. Don't get me going on how we had to rename Squaw Peek to Lorrie Fucking Can't Drive But She Was An Injun So We'll Rename A Mountain For The Bitch That Can't Drive. I believe they call that: Pie-Es-Tee-Wah Peek now.
