Today marks the 62nd anniversary of the famous response to a German surrender demand by Gen. Anthony McAuliffe, the Commanding General of the 101st Airborn Division who were surrounded in Bastogne France.  I couldn't possibly do the story justice, but you can read an account from a then Lt. Col. Kinnard.

We need a few Generals like McAuliffe right now and a political system that'll let them do their job.
