A great moral figure

Condi Rice says the pope is “a great moral figure, as well as religious figure.” There just might be something wrong with organized religion when you have to specify which religious leaders are also “great moral figures.”

Speaking of great moral figures, Capt. Rogelio Maynulet was sentenced to no jail time for murdering putting out of his misery a wounded Iraqi, although he was discharged from the army. Said Maynulet, “I’m happy to have my life back, but I’m being forced out of my family. It’s hard to leave the Army this way.” I’m sure the guy he killed felt the same way, except for the having-his-life-back part.
