Pimping the Dead 

It's not TV. It's a Bush Blowjob. Aside from the gholishness of the very idea, get a load of how HBO's pitching "Last Letters Home":
The soldiers' last words. Their families' last memories. Our nation's lasting gratitude. This Veterans Day, HBO and The New York Times, in association with LIFE Books, present a poignant tribute to the fallen American soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the war in Last Letters Home: Voices of American Troops from the Battlefields of Iraq, read by the families of ten men and women killed in action.

Whaddya think the odds are that Lila Lipscomb's son's last letter will be one of those?
"[Bush] got us out here for nothing whatsoever. I am so furious right now, Mama.

"I cannot wait to get home and get back to my life."
Based on the sanitized letters that ran last year in the "liberal" NYT (and linked to by HBO), Tracksports has a glurge orgy at very short odds.

I canceled HBO after Six Feet Under ended, so I can't tune in even if I wanted. If non-diabetic readers have the stomach, they can report back. I have a still-living friend in Iraq I'm more concerned about right now.
