Damn the PC Police

the title says it all. hopefully. i'm still figuring out how to make it work. so if it doesn't show up, i'm complaining about the PC (politically correct) police, people who go around changing things to make them PC. in this case, they got ahold of the song "proud to be an American"... it's a rather cheesy song, but still a good one. you all know the line "and i won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me." but "men" is, of course, way too strong of a term. it now reads (at least in the version i heard at the wenatchee fireworks show last night) "and i won't forget the ones who died...." i realize that women have also died for our country, but changing a song so we don't leave them out is just ridiculous. if the PC police really cared, they would write a new song about patriotism that reflects the growing role women have in our society. it's just like the democrats... hammering the republicans for anything that goes wrong, but never offering a solution of their own.
