    Hmmm....the morality of the actions in war is something to be debated. These types of stories are very complex and I'm not a fan of articles that depict them in such a black and white fashion.

    And even more reason why some guys who throw and catch balls for a living shouldn't shit on Old Glory.

    True. If anything I've always thought that the Anthem was above being played before a bunch of over paid players in athletic supporters run around on a cow pasture. But that's me.

    There is a podcaster named Dan Carlin that does a show called Hardcore History. He just came out with an episode on the Indianapolis. Talked about how the Captain for years after, would receive letters from the families of dead sailors around Christmas and other holidays telling him that his actions were the reason their loved ones weren't still alive. They say he kept every letter until finally some 20 years after, he killed himself.

    I couldn't imagine.
