    I was there. Her calm dignity, her wise words, her lack of hate were all impressive beyond words.

    Nick is a fine young man, whose father died fighting in a questionable war. That made the demeanor of both his mother and grandfather all the more impressive.

    And in the meantime, people like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and the rest of our Utah Congressional delegation trample wisdom in the name of some kind of elusive "victory" that has cost all of us very dearly.

    As Ms. Parr said repeatedly yesterday, "They all need to go."

    I have nothing but respect for this fine lady. She gets it. I wish a few others did too.
