  1. Monuments are really one of my favorite subjects. Any country that has monuments to Generals that led armies in the defense of formal slavery does not deserve a seat in the United Nations let alone a seat on the UN Security Council. The type of monument that the USA really needs is a monument to those one in eight white males from confederate states who at great risk to themselves and their families enlisted in the Union Army and helped make possible an at least temporary end to a great injustice.

  2. Another monument that I think would be appropriate would be one for the Helicopter pilot that landed at My Lai and stood in front of some Vietnamese that were about to be executed by the American soldiers there saving the lives of those Vietnamese.

  3. As I was fideling around on the computer I was listening to this National Geographic Channel program about the First World War.
    It made me realize that there is another needed monument that has never been built. It is a monument to the brilliant British General that proposed launching the amphibious landing behind the Hindenberg Line that brought an end to the First World War sooner than anyone thought that it could be won. It gave the phrase stabbed in the back an all new meaning.
