You Go, Girl
Yesterday's horrible shooting spree at Fort Hood could have been a lot worse if not for the colossal courage of the Fort Hood Police Department's Sgt. Kimberly Munley.
The civilian cop faced the crazed Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and blasted him in the torso, bringing him down.
Munley was shot in the thighs and wrist in the gunfire exchange.
While this horrible attack has further marred the reputation of Muslims in America, especially those serving in the armed forces, it's done a lot to bolster the reputation of female police officers everywhere.
I think Sgt. Munley should be honored with the highest award the federal government has to offer. She showed more guts than most of us could ever hope to have.
As for Hasan, once again he proved that the military fails to pay attention to mentally unbalanced soldiers. It's hard to believe a man this insane was offering psychiatric care to our troops.
