Chickenhawk status[edit]

According to TOW, Krauthammer was paralyzed in his first year of med school -Obnoxious as he is, I think it's a little unfair to call him "Chickenhawk" when he was clearly 4F'ed. Is his student career sufficient to earn him the badge? --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:06, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

And before that he was an undergrad at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) -- a noted destination for American boys trying to avoid the draft. He was actually on the staff of the McGill Daily in 1968-69 or so, and, since I'm writing a dissertation that involves student movements at the time, I run into his name pretty often.

...And he was raised in Montreal. By his own logic, he should have returned to his native country, gone to college in the US and joined the ROTC, I'll add something to this effect. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:16, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Did not know he was raised there. Let my inspiration flow/In token token lines suggesting rhythm. 15:21, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Going by the other wiki. It could be lying by omission.--TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:31, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
