Defund the Military



To all those who may be complaining about the smoke covered sky: If you ever wondered what a "Nuclear Winter" would look like, this is only a mild preview ("Advisory: Local Air Quality is 'Very Unhealthy,'" posted Sept. 12).

If you are unhappy or concerned about the smoke and the unprecedented state of fires in California (and elsewhere), remember the roughly $740 billion U.S. military budget and how that money could be better spent on equipment and wo/manpower to fight the fires instead of equipment for creating more death and destruction around the world ... and at home.

Remember, too, that truth is the first casualty of war!
