The Cross in the Dirt

As a teenager, I read "The Passing of the Night" by Colonel Robinson Reisner, and was profoundly affected by the moral stength of the men in the Hanoi Hilton. Particularly moving was the story of how one of the POWs provided a church service by whistling the "Ave Maria" while the guards were away one day.
So, imagine my outrage when John McCain's story about drawing a cross in the dirt with a Christian Vietcong prison guard is questioned by the Obama camp.It's the tactic of a campaign which fears it's in decline.
Creative Minority Report has the story.
