    Pretty funny at first but sad the more you think about it.

    Storyline- two guys who stood for so much now fighting with each other like a couple of grumpy old men .
  4. I seriously do not care.
    It was one of the most compelling acts of public protest of my lifetime. It still is. I don't think the fact that Ira Hayes ended badly makes the Iwo Jima memorial any less moving.

    They let him raise the flag and lower it like you'd throw a dog a bone.

    They've been bickering for quite a while. The HBO special that ran about ten years ago on the subject still holds up very well.
  7. Very good call.
    Excellent show, especially Peter Norman, the forgotten Aussie who was on the stand with them and wore an OPHR button. Good on him, too. I think he passed a couple years ago.

    Call him "Drunken Ira Hayes;" he won't answer any more.
    Not the whiskey-drinking Indian
    Or the Marine who went to war ...
