Amazing what some people are willing to fight and die for, including a song. Incredible.

Why do you have to drag Jimmy down with this story? Just say it was a song on a Jukebox, or just a bar fight... And please spell his name right next time...Buffett....

I agree Weaves....Jimmy had nothing to do with it....the point is, they got in a fight over a "SONG"...What is this world coming to? I'm guessing alcohol played a huge part in it.... I feel bad for his family....Lord, bless our troops....

I continue to be amazed at the editing (or lack thereof), the almost daily mis-spellings ... it is no wonder this rag is all but going out of business.

The funny thing too is that this is a "feed" story from the AP ... and, the name is spelled wrong even in the body copy!

If they were just smoking pot, this wouldn't have happened! Alcohol tends to bring out the worst in people. Sad story.

Two soldiers and a Navy guy, brother of one of the soldiers couldn't handle two locals in Colorado, they all took a whipping. The one from mexico who joined for the quick route to citizenship just got unlucky and lost his life. No weapons involved, just fisticuffs but anytime you get in a fight, all it takes is one hard blow to kill. All this over a song? Idiots, booze in a bar and testosterone. The military can build up confidence but it can't give one wisdom or sensibility.

"Marine" what does that mean, they are just flesh and bone with an attitude, pour in some booze and you have a jerk with a loud mouth but nothing more.
