MUDVILLE GAZETTE: Some things about Bud Day that don't make CNN.
UPDATE: Bill Ardolino emails:
Saw your post on Bud Day. I just happened to finish his biography written by Robert Coram, and all I can say is "wow" and "highly recommended:"
The man was beaten with a rubber strip hours at a time for months during the summer of 1969, and he never gave up any info about his unit to the North Vietnamese. He once ejected from an exploding jet, his parachute failed to deploy, and he lived. And that's the tip of the iceberg; the story of his life is so incredible, it's almost hard to believe.
Anyway, highly recommended. Maybe someone should mail a copy to CNN.
