The Next Level Grip-n-Grin

Imagine my excitement when I opened the Inquirer last night and, as I always do first, immediately turned to page A5 and saw a story headlined "Lynndie England says she wasn't 'this evil torturer.'" I think my thought process was along these lines, "Oh boy ohboyohboy, G.I. Jane's gonna come correct about how she let the cigarette a'dangle when she did the whole 'Fingers Pointin' at Abu Ghraib manmeat, and somehow managing to liplock said cigarette while grinning."
Well, imagine my disappointment when the piece turned into some fair-to-middlin' AP story out of West Virginia about how she's going to start a book tour. Oh well, I guess I shouldn't have expected any depth out of a "Keyser, W. Va." dateline. At least I have an excuse to run these photos, though.
And remember, Lynndie = Victim.

Abu Ghraibi Fever -- Do the Lynndie!

She should've got on the ball with the book and tour the minute Errol Morris rang her for "Standard Operating Procedure".

I knew this one would find it's way to you. Lynndie rawks!!! If she stops in Philly for the book tour, I'm there, with camera to send film overseas your way.
