The Sadness to Come

Last night I watched "The News Hour," as I regularly tune in to liberal media establishment so I will know what to think. After learning about derivative swaps (we need transparency!) I watched the segment on a fighter plane that's causing Congress to get mad (we need accountability!)

Not to go into too much detail but Lockheed Martin has been working to develop one design fighter that can be modified three different ways--and as usual with multipurpose weapons, three different functions means it doesn't do any of them all that great. To Congress' surprise there have been delays and cost overruns.

But that's not the sad part. A Lockheed Martin spokesman stated in his interview that the investment in this fighter is worth it because in the long run we'll save. "Our children will be flying these into battle. Our grandchildren will be flying these into battle."

There will be battles; there will be wars; and children yet unborn will fly into them.
