Raging Grannies indeed

Maggie says:
M-pyre's beloved Raging Grannies have extra significance today.

According to CNN, "'Raging Grannies' want to enlist, go to Iraq." Now I don't think these Raging Grannies are the same ones as our mascots, but how cool are these women?!?!

"A group of anti-war senior citizens calling themselves the 'Tucson Ranging Grannies' say they want to enlist in the U.S. Army and go to Iraq so that their children and grandchildren can come home." Five of the women are facing trespassing charges for trying to enlist at a local recruitment office. Raging Granny Betty Schroeder, 74, complained that "...they wouldn't even speak to us... they just called the police."

I'd like the Raging Grannies to know that their message is being heard loud and clear. Especially by us hopeful Raging Grannies. Rock on, ladies!
