...now, l don't care.

A thing like this contaminates

your soul, Mr. Picard.

lt ruined my life.

lt ruined my life, it ruined my life.

And l think it's my duty to God and to my

country to set the record straight...

...about Lieutenant Benjamin Tyson...

...and the atrocities at Misericorde.

ln lraq today, the U.S. Army continued their

patrol of former Ba'ath party headquarters.

The site of sporadic looting and violence.

-Did you talk to David?

-Oh, l talked.

l'm not sure he listened.

He's still saying he didn't cheat.

Teachers have it in for him....

Yeah, right.

Well, he's gotta come to it on his own.

Stop being the principal.

Be his mom.

Well, since you're in such

a forgiving mood...

...l meant to tell you that l had to wire

my sister more money last week.

She sounded so desperate, Ben.

Maybe she should've gone

back to her husband...

...instead of blowing

all that money on lawyers.

Not cool.

-Who blew all their money on lawyers?

-Aunt Francie, honey.

She's going through a hard time.

-She shouldn't have married the bum.

-Oh, very compassionate.

People experience problems

in their lives, David.

-lt could happen to any of us.

-Good to know.

People just have to take responsibility

for their actions. Don't they?

-Have a wonderful day at school, David.

-Yeah, right.

Hold on. Jim Wattenberg.

-Call back.

-Mr. Wattenberg?

He's rushing into a meeting.

Mr. Tyson's office.

No, l'm sorry. He's not in....

l talked to Brian Falco.

They're waiting on our recommendations.

Yeah, l want to talk to you about that.

Don't tell me you're having

second thoughts, my friend.

The board meeting's tomorrow.

-Ben, it's your wife.

-Hold the calls, okay?

-And get me Phil Sloan.

-You all right?

You know, l'm right

in the middle of something.
