Now I confess to not following this trial too closely, because, frankly, every time I saw the name Bradley Manning I had to stop and ask myself if he was the one playing for the Colts or the Giants?
So, yesterday was no small surprise when the radio news was telling us over and over and over that Bradley had been acquitted of the charge that would have brought him a life sentence. Whew. Dodged THAT one! Except, this AM's headlines read that Pfc. Manning could be sentenced to 136 years for the 20 counts he was convicted of.
Well, at least he didn't get life!
