the Marines screwed up, and they took the blame

In the weekend Wall Street Journal, the inimitable Peggy Noonan ponders the example set for us by the US Marines in their examination of the F/A-18 crash at San Diego in December: 'This wasn't damage control, it was taking honest responsibility. And as such, in any modern American institution, it was stunning.' Why, she asks, can't Wall Street, Congress, and the White House be as honest? Blue skies! -- Dan Ford

(Noonan's column appears on Saturday in the print edition, Friday online)

Proud of those Marines. Of course, making excuses isn't part of Marine DNA. Unless you're John Murtha.
