And that's it....we spent some time next to the (closed) pool in 85F sunny weather, watched some C-SPAN about the Senate investigation of the fraudulent story put out by the US Army about the death of Pat Tillman who they initially said died in a fire-fight from enemy fire and made no mention of "friendly-fire" albeit there was plently of evidence they knew about it.
Patrick Daniel Tillman, Jr. (November 6, 1976 - April 22, 2004) was an American football player who left his professional sports career and enlisted in the United States Army in May 2002, along with his brother Kevin Tillman.
He served in Iraq and later in Afghanistan, as a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment, where he was killed. His decision, and subsequent death, were the subject of much media attention. More controversy ensued when, on May 28, 2004, the Pentagon notified the Tillman family that he had died as a result of a friendly fire incident; the family and other critics alleged that the Department of Defense delayed the disclosure for weeks after Tillman's memorial service out of a desire to protect the image of the U.S. armed forces. Specifically, Patrick Tillman, Pat Tillman's father, told the Washington Post, "..all the people in positions of authority went out of their way to script this. They purposely interfered with the investigation, they covered it up."
Seems like we're in Nowheresville - but nice hotel and we're happy.
Off to Memphis tomorrow - hoping to see Graceland on Tuesday.
