James Webb

James Webb, in the New York Times, March 30, 2003, You've got your war novelist, phoning it in from his experiences in Vietnam, 30 years ago:
Visions of cheering throngs welcoming them as liberators have vanished in the wake of a bloody engagement whose full casualties are still unknown. . . . Welcome to hell. Many of us lived it in another era. And don't expect it to get any better for a while.
At the time of this posting, of course, it's Senator-Elect Webb.
