The Pain

Simmon's commencement speaker was Bianca Jagger.

The horror of being held hostage and subjected to a diatribe from Mick Jagger's ex-wife on the moral compass of this country is more than I can convey.

Gitmo
Iraq
Global Warming

I stood and turned my back on her when she said that our going into Iraq was immoral. Grace grabbed my leg and begged me to sit down. I did. The pulse was pounding in my throat. I have never had to sit and be attacked like that. I have never been in a position where I had to be quiet. It was horrible. But for Debbie I kept silent.

She lost the crowd at that point anyway. A few people boo'd. Then most people began talking among themselves.

She made herself irrelevant.

Still, I am not kidding or just being typical dramatic Princess Crabby when I tell you how it hurt to sit and just take it.

This does not sound like sympathy.

Somehow you have figured out that anyone who panders to me is dropped like a hot rock. Bastid. You are a natural for the Navy Coterie.

I am sulking.
