WHEN CHICKENHAWKS CLUCK. Annoyed by complaints of chickenhawkery, Warren Bell posts an email from Greg Pollowitz who complains: "I got called a chickenhawk the other day. I think one of the greatest missed opportunities since 9/11 is that the govt. didn't create a way for 30+ year old guys who want to help, but really can't, to serve." But, actually, they did. Welcome to the National Guard, where all citizens between the ages of 17 and 40 are eligible for service.
