Katy Couric, a network TV newsanchor, was interviewing a US Marine in Iraq via cell phone last week.
You could tell that the marine was tiring of her stupid questions but he was a gentleman and answered as best he could.
Her last question was, "Tell us, corporal, what do you feel when you pull the trigger to kill an insurgent?"
The marine thought for about two seconds and answered, "Recoil".
I laughed for ten minutes.
