I remember the children laughing
Running down the cracked downtown street
And I remember seeing
The bombs whiz by
The laughter turned to frantic screams


There will be no more cheering
The tears away
All that remained but loyalty
Stripped away
Oh, my God, what have we done?

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
