I borrow this from Alan's blog.
Why should we hear about body bags and deaths," Barbara Bush said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on March 18, 2003. "Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"
One might argue over whether or not she has a beautiful mind, but the inability to let in grief and feel empathy is a reason we have war. Bush doesn't feel, because his mother taught him, by her standard, well.
