Said in Jest

I was at a local baseball game with a friend and he said two things in jest, but upon consideration, weren't so funny.
1) Gee, that umpire behind home plate has more body armor than our troops in Iraq.

2) And come to think of it, the contractors in Iraq have more body armor than the enlisted folks...and they get paid upward of 3 to 6 times more than the GI doing the exact or essentially the same jobs.
We chucled, but then frowned. Truth hurts, sometimes. We spent the rest of the time talking baseball stats, and game at hand. Incidentially, our team won, which always makes for a better trek home.
