Always Better To Be A VIP

Have the recent revelations about substandard conditions at Walter Reed Army Hospital been blown out of proportion? It certainly appears so, since the news media made it seem like the whole building was overrun by mold, mice and roaches.

Now it turns out that like with so many other things in life, the truth is not so simple. There are VIP suites on the top floor, and those are furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting, antique furniture, and fine china. It's a relief to know that while enlisted personnel may have to shoo vermin away from their openly festering war wounds, generals and top politicians don't have to deal with such primitive conditions while they are treated for life threatening hangnails.
