JOHN KERRY'S MEDALS....I know that I'm hardly in a position to complain about political minutiae, but is this whole John Kerry flap really about (a) whether he threw ribbons over a fence in 1971 or the actual medals themselves, and (b) whether or not soldiers routinely refer to their uniform ribbons as "medals"?

(Answer: (a) ribbons, (b) yes.)

Even by the admittedly low standards of Campaign 2004, isn't this a fairly desperate line of attack?

Anyway, Thomas Oliphant was there when it happened, and he tells the story in the Boston Globe today.
