Praise and Prayer

Praise: Pat Tillman has done something almost unheard of in these days: He turned down huge bucks as a professional football player to join the Army. Tillman, who was a a safety for the Arizona Cardinals, had already passed on a multi-year contract with St. Louis which would have earned him $9 million. He turned that offer down last year to stay for less money with the Cardinals, from a sense of loyalty. In his latest conscience-clearing move, he traded his football uniform for an Army ranger uniform. As Mike Lopresti, columnist for Gannett News Service, put it: "The last months of terror and warnings have been stark reminders of how deadly a world is out there. Someone has to protect us. Someone may have to save us. Pat Tillman, who just came home from his honeymoon, wants to help do it."
