Suck on This

Sometimes headlines and digests just aren't enough:
Kunk recalled that Green once said, "All Iraqis are bad people." "I told him that that wasn't true, and that 90 to 95 percent of the Iraqi people are good people and they want the same thing that we have in the United States," Kunk said.

Defense Attorney Capt. James Culp, who sucked on lollipops during his cross-examination, questioned Kunk about whether the unremitting violence of the area patrolled by the soldiers caused combat stress. Kunk said most of the nearly 1,000 soldiers in the battalion were able to deal with the deaths of their fellow soldiers.
Maybe I should integrate blow-pops into my pedagogy.
