I can't imagine a heart so cold and unfeeling that it wouldn't want to help our troops in any possible way. So when I came across the following list of web sites, I thought all of you would like to know about them.

Franks and Foley

Talk about tempests in teapots! Why don't Republicans remind the nation that Rep. Barney Franks (D-MA) is still serving in Congress. He, unlike Foley, actually did have sex with a homosexual back in the 1980s, complete with the attendant scandal. Didn't hurt his career at all. Perhaps it's better to do it than to talk about it.
