I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
Leave it to the Army to FUBAR a pillowfight.
By tradition, West Point cadets celebrate the end of summer training by smacking each other silly with pillows. Something new was added in the stuffing this year, something new and hard, like maybe those helmets that not only can stop a bullet on defense, but on offense can split lips, bust bones and knock people slightly worse than silly — like, unconscious.
So, at least thirty of the boys who will soon lead men in battle are resting their heads this night on starched white hospital pillows.
This we’ll not defend.
