As I spun the radio dial this morning I caught Don Imus (remember when he used to have a radio presence?) railing about the dire circumstances of veterans in America. Per Don and Deirdre, one vet in four coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan is homeless - 200,000 altogether. Deirdre's information was apparently inspired by some recent event involving Judy Woodruff (if I heard that correctly, and who knows?)
Since the 200,000 figure is for all vets stretching back to the Spanish-American War, I am quite sure the Imus's stats are muddled.
Fortunately, no one is listening.
