Ive sold six. Four more than my average.
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL (PRWEB) June 3, 2004
Author Bob Miller (http://www.bobmillerwrites.com - firstname.lastname@example.org), said when I asked how book sales were going at a local book fair, "IÂve sold six. Four more than my average."
Having known Miller for several years, I knew he wouldnÂt discuss his health issues except to say he had some, so I asked if his little speech, Cowering In A Corner, might have had something do with the improved book sales.
"Nope. ItÂs a waste of time to try and shame a coward. Their yellow streaks already run bone marrow deep. These flag-waving Americans who preach support for our troops, then stand idly by as self-serving tribunals court-marshal low-ranking enlisted solders who were carrying out orders from senior NCOs and so-called officers, make me want to puke."
I didnÂt think it would help but thought it worth a try and asked Bob if chemo and radiation had provided him any relief. He continued as if the question hadnÂt been asked.
"It would be different if every active duty and ex-military person in this country didnÂt know that an E-5 couldnÂt wipe his or her own butt in an unmilitary manner two days in a row and not get put on report by someone up the food chain.
"Americans are fair-weather supporters. Many of these young soldiers will learn on returning home just how much support weÂre willing to provide. I went to the local veterans hospital to give my doctor a private doctorÂs report; they asked if I would go across the street to a copy place as their two copy machines had stopped working. Not to mention that these flag wavers are not demanding any of the creators of this POW disgrace be court-martial because that Brigadier General would eventually lead to the Chief of Staff who, in turn, would lead to the justifiable hanging of the PresidentÂs personal terrorist, Donald Rumsfeld.
"Here something different for your fish wrapping, bird cage newspapers. I'm not speaking on the condition of anonymity. IÂm Bob Miller."
