Herberts Depiction of Recruiters is "Horse Excrement"

Corey Last ( in a OpEd: NYT) writes a face slap to Bob Herbert's Tuesday Column about Military Recruiters.

Here's the line I liked:
Herbert also makes the negative connotation that recruiters "prey" on these kids. That is a bunch of horse excrement as well. A recruiter is a salesman, I will agree, and his job is to find people and put them in boots. Of course he is going to seek out the kids who don't have a ton of money lying around, kids from rural areas who want to get out of their small town, kids who don't have a plan.

Herbert gives recruiters a bum rap

Kudos to Corey!!
