GOD MEND THINE EV'RY FLAW

The company known as TOPPS is currently manufacturing and selling "ENDURING FREEDOM" trading cards. I saw them at the 7-Eleven. They're up by the register.

I looked at the counter guy while he rang up my hot dog and Big Gulp combo meal, and I said: "Holy shit! Do people buy these things?"

He smiled, but not in any type of sarcastic way, and said OH YES with a Middle Eastern accent. I bought a pack and I got:

"FBI Director Mueller Addresses The Media"

"USS George Washington Off The Coast of New York"

“Britain's Tony Blair, A Staunch Ally"

"Bush Receives Update from Giuliani"

"USS Winston Churchill - Courageous Namesake"

"Marines Head Out for Overseas Duty"

"82nd Airborne Troops at Fort Bragg, N.C."

Also included was a peel-off sticker with the American Flag and the words "These Colors Don't Run" printed below the Stars and Bars.

But the other night, there were quite a few clips of college kids saying: "It's an unjust war." Since I'm not in college, I can say things like "Yeah but it's still a fucking war."
