Rosalea Barker: So? And so on.
So? And so on.

Here’s a snippet from the transcript of an interview aired on this evening’s ABC News between correspondent Martha Raddatz and Vice President Cheney:
RADDATZ: Let me go
back to the Americans. Two-thirds of Americans say it's not
worth fighting, and they're looking at the value gain versus
the cost in American lives, certainly, and Iraqi lives.
THE VICE PRESIDENT: So?
RADDATZ: So -- you don't care what the American people think?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls.

::On the radio::
From March 14th to 16th, Pacifica Radio provided coverage of the historic Winter Soldier 2008 gathering in Washington, DC. The three-day live broadcast was co-hosted by Aaron Glantz and former Army medic and KPFA Morning Show host Aimee Allison.
The full audio archive is here.
The title of the project derives from the first of Thomas Paine’s articles written between 1776 and 1783 during the American Revolutionary War:
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
