On Bob McNamara

He’s dead.

I’m not going to say that I’m glad or anything.  I’m pretty much indifferent.  But it reminds me of a time in 2002, when I was visiting my friend Justin at Harvard, and one of his dormmates mentioned that she was going to go see a speech McNamara was delivering.  I said to her, “Tell him he’s an asshole for me.”

I don’t think she did.

Bob McNamara was an asshole, and he was an asshole who never owned up to the full extent of his assholery, even in the Fog of War. I certainly won’t miss him.

‘Nuff said.
