    Medal of Honor Earned or Won ? ? ?

    Winning implies a type of chance in an occurance.

    The people who have received the Medal of Honor are common people who exhibit uncommon valor in pressure situations. There is no win involved. There is simply a showing of extra ordinary courage in a situation that most of us could never imagine and would never know how to handle. Go read what Roy Benzvidez did under fire. Now that is a great American.

    • "Would you buy MHI at this juncture, and what do you think of ENN, JSN and PHK?

      Greenspan said he will keep raising the Fed funds rate. I don't buy that."

      I am not looking for businesses to own now.I own a few in which I am comfortable.

      I think that Greenspan will take the short-term rate to 4%. Fortunately, the 10 year is normalizing, not killing the housing goose, but increasing the spreads. '05 housing is better than '04, contrary to the TV pundits as well as others in the mainstream business press.

      ..."won" and "earn" do have different connotations, but they are bunk with regard to the Congressional Medal of Honor.
