One former Marine's entrance into politics (Salon.com LINK):

July 26, 2005 | Paul Hackett remembers being in Kuwait, waiting to be shipped home after a seven-month tour of duty in Ramadi and Fallujah, watching CNN America with his fellow Marines. What he saw enraged him. "All I saw on TV was Terri Schiavo," he says. "The federal government and the Florida state government came screeching to a halt to intervene into the private lives of this family during this tragic time ... Like that scene out of 'Network,' I felt like the guy who stood in the spotlight and said, 'I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore.'" Not long after he returned to Ohio, he decided to run for Congress.

Good for Hackett. We need more like him, but I think Schivo parents got our government involved so they are to blame too.

Sad that muslims are considering to leave Britain. Though I would have to say that it shows people aren't much different around the world. America's not so backwords after all, Brits.
