from north

nothin' against evangelicals, of which i in at least some sense am one, but can we please not turn the whole military into a Crusading organization? it seems clear that it's too late for the air force academy, not to mention for the commander in chief, but i suppose i was hoping that the military's much-vaunted professional culture might be some sort of fortification against this particular incursion. then again, incursions from within...

unfortunately for all of us, it's not as if jesuits or unitarians or even middle-of-the-road american protestants or catholics are prosyletizing up a storm. no, this is the sort of "moral vision" that makes kissinger-style amoral realism look warm and fuzzy.
