    Georgia National Guard to bring baby Noor to U.S. for surgery.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    Dr. Roger Hudgins, the chief of neurosurgery at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, has promised to perform the delicate operation for free.
    Both the soldiers and this doctor deserve our thanks!
