Fred Barnes reports from Baghad on “the postwar corps,” the idealistic volunteers working to make Iraq a free and democratic society. According to Barnes, Paul Bremer has actually had to cut off the flow of volunteers because “there are more than I can possibly take.” (Most of Barnes’ article is available only to subscribers).
Rocket Man has said that today, unlike in our youth, “the fun is on the right.” I think we can also say that today (even more so than in our youth) idealism is with those who serve, rather than bash, their country. I’ll have more to say about this when I get a chance to report on the memorial service I attended yeterday evening for one of the leading postwar corps activists in Iraq, former peace corps member (and, as I learned yesterday, former homecoming queen) Fern Holland.
