That Whole Rigamarole

Soft America and Hard America

The other day I was driving to work with a WLS newcast on the radio and I heard two consecutive stories about young people from the Chicago area. The first one was about Marnie Holz. The second one was about Jakub Kowalik.

Hearing the two stories one after the other made me grit my teeth. Today, Marnie's story and source of her infamy is still prominent in the news. When she sells her book and/or movie rights, we'll hear about her again. Corporal Kowalik's name doesn't come up much. I suppose that on the day of his funeral, he'll get another, brief mention.
