#1 While you are busy commemorating Mr. Romanov, please don't forget to commemorate those who, unlike yourself, had the courage and patriotism to stand up and take your place. I'm sure your children, parents, grandparents, and neighbors are justly proud of your decision.

#2 although about half returned home after President Jimmy Carter granted amnesty in 1977.

Another thing Carter is responsible for... They should never have been granted amnesty - they made their decision and they should have to abide by it.

I think we should have a memorial for the millions of Vietmanese who were victims of the 're-education centers' which McGovern and the left loved so much. Have it feature a statue of that Hero of North Vietnam - John Fkin Kerry.

#4 The plan for a monument in Nelson, British Columbia, was originally announced in 2004, but quickly dropped

That's what I get for reading only the headline. Maybe Canadians do have more sense, that or they crave $.

#5 I disagree, they should have been granted amnesty but a decade or two later so they had a chance to live with their decision for awhile.

#6 I met a number of US draft dodgers when I lived in Toronto in the early eighties. I was left with the impression they were losers, the type who whine about everything. Whether they were losers before they came or as a result of coming, I don't know.

#7 Romano said the activists have not decided on a location for the planned sculpture, and welcomed proposals from both Canadian and U.S. communities.

How about you shove it up your ass?
