  Why the anti-war left can Kiss My Ass
Medal of Honor Memorial defaced: "Vandals left the Medal of Honor Memorial looking like it had been through its own battle Tuesday, and repairs are expected to take at least six weeks.

Memorial officials estimate repairs could cost $6,000 to $8,000 in materials alone.

'It's not so much the money, it's the fact that someone would do this dishonor to people who have gone above and beyond in protecting the rights of American citizens,' said Susan Hanafee, a member of the IPALCO Foundation board responsible for the upkeep of the memorial on the Downtown Canal.

The attack on the memorial also upset and surprised visitors out enjoying the spring-like weather.

'It's shocking,' said Harold Cleaver, 34, as his sons, Logan, 7, and Ethan, 6, moved through the memorial. Both children were old enough to understand the significance of the memorial, a series of green glass panels inscribed with the names of the soldiers who received the country's highest honor for bravery during war."
