Novelist Stephen King recently insulted the troops by saying to a room full of children, “If you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don’t, then you’ve got the Army, Iraq, I don’t know, something like that. It’s not as bright.” The troops poked some fun back at King who I’m sure will take it snobbishly. They’ll go about saving the world while King will go back to writing about clowns eating children.
