Conkrite Says Get Out of Iraq

Entertaining AP article re Walter Conkrite, beloved news anchor from the time before I remember teevee news. (Cut me some slack - I was three when he retired.)

He thinks we should get out of Iraq and spend the money on hurricane recovery. Clearly, he's been out of the news gathering business for awhile since he pays no attention to the military industrial complex.

Amusing bit o Daily Show yesterday: Eugene Jarecki having a child-like amazement at Eisenhower's military industrial complex farewell address. And his doc re same, Why We Fight. Glad to see people other than my fellow peace & justice studies students and peace activists taking the military industrial complex seriously.
