Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' doctors and the intern who rushed to her aid when she was shot in Tucson will be honored guests at Tuesday's State of the Union address. Without taking anything away from the doctors' skills or the young hero's bravery, what message does this send to the 1 million families who lost their homes to foreclosure last year or the 15 million people who lost their jobs and can't find new ones? I hope it's not "Take a back seat, chumps, I've moved on to something else."
