The palpable misery of Fort Hood

Fort Hood was and is a powder keg just waiting for a match. Last year there was one but it didn’t cause much of an explosion, only one person died. This year is another story, as we all know. But what about next year?

Mimi Swartz on the Daily Beast explains Fort Hood’s bleak world, from it’s Iraq-like topography to its appeals to take in kids whose both parents are shipped to the Front on Terror.

The short piece packs a wallop and leaves the reader depressed.

President Obama should read this piece as he tries to manage two pointless wars.
