For those in the DC area who are bored today, you might want to head to BWI for the LTC Terrence Lakin hero's welcome home. Having completed his confinement term at Ft. Leavenworth, he is homeward bound. You'll remember Lakin as the Army Pentagon doctor who sacrified his once-promising career on the altar of the "birthers," rather than deploying to Afghanistan. Now that President Obama has revealed his "long-form" birth certificate proving that Obama was, indeed, born in Hawaii, Lakin seeks a presidential pardon for his court-martial conviction.
The BWI scene ought to be quite the spectacle, but, alas, I believe I have papers to grade or a flower bed to weed at that time. I'll save that trip to the airport for the real heroes returning from that deployment to Afghanistan that Lakin refused.
