  Early Tuesday morning, between the hours of 1 am to 3:30 am, I was
enduring Phase II of my preparation for colonoscopy in the morning. Sleep
was out of the question, so I turned on the TV to pass the time. Most of
the movie channels were showing old war movies to "honor" the fallen. They
ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous.  I don't recall the movie, but
one began with a quote from Plato:

                                                                   "Only
the dead have seen the end of war."

   I'm afraid he was right.
