I doubt if the texture of Southern life is any more grotesque than that of the rest of the nation," wrote Flannery O'Connor, "but it does seem evident that the Southern writer is particularly adept at recognizing the grotesque; and to recognize the grotesque, you have to have some notion of what is not grotesque and why." Ray McKinnon has that notion, and it's his signal strength as a Southern writer-director. Chrystal, set in the Arkansas Ozarks, tells the often violent and lowdown story of a guy named Joe (Billy Bob Thornton)

Flying at 30,000 feet over the Atlantic is about as detached from earthly concerns as one can get. Seat bound and strapped in found me staring at Lady Gaga's two gun M16 brazier photo on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, reminding me that the world below is full of strangeness and requires a reality disconnect from time to time. Michael Hastings' article in Rolling Stone, "The Runaway General", also requires the previous description pulsating off the front cover. The article, and General Stanley McChrystal's outing by President Obama, is history.

Chrystal Marie Clifford, who excelled in her college journalism studies, was beginning her career at the Towson Times. She joined the Times staff in June, compiling listings of community events and a digest of school news. Her promotion to reporter was on the horizon, her bosses said. Saturday, Miss Clifford died of injuries suffered when the car she was riding in hit a telephone pole on Frederick Road west of Catonsville. She was 22 and lived in Reisterstown. "She had all the traits you look for in a good reporter," said James S. Keat, a retired assistant managing editor of The Sun who supervised her when she was a summer intern working under the auspices of the Maryland-Delaware-D.

As his part-time shift at the Food Lion in Cockeysville was winding down one recent evening, Robert Chrystal overheard another store employee struggling to communicate with the store manager. When he noticed a Russian accent, Chrystal hurried over to help the two men overcome the language barrier. Then the employee asked a question that, coming from a Russian who had been in the United States less than three weeks, made Chrystal feel honored. "He asked if I was from Russia," said the 34-year-old, who doesn't have a Russian bone in his body.

If you read the "Uniform Code of Military Justice," Gen. Stanley McChrystal got off easy. What he and his crew did were court martial-grade offenses. If President Obama had only given him a slap on the wrist it would have opened the door to even bigger infractions by others who would have read this as a weakness on the part of the president. I agree with the president on this. He had no other alternative action except court martial. Every new soldier, marine and sailor gets the same speech about the "Code of Conduct" and "Uniform Code of Military Justice."

Gen. Stanley McChrystal put President Obama in a terrible bind. Forgive the insubordinate remarks the commander of allied forces in Afghanistan made in an article in Rolling Stone, and President Obama destroys the chain of command that puts civilians in charge of our military, condones disrespect and poor discipline in the ranks and looks like a wimp besides. Fire him, and the president risks disrupting an increasingly deadly military offensive at what may be the most critical point in what is now America's longest war. The president will no doubt get criticism from the supposed friends of the military that his decision to replace the general puts the troops at greater risk over what amounted to a series of ill-advised jokes among General McChrystal and his staff.

If President Barack Obama meets his goals in Afghanistan with the surge in troops like George W. Bush did in Iraq, he will quell the critics about taking his time to make the troop decision. However, if the plan fails, his troop surge decision will be the political death blow to his presidency. But now President Obama should fire Gen. Stanley McChrystal for publicly announcing his troop needs back last summer without approval from his boss. Clearly, General McChrystal was disrespectful, if not insubordinate, to his boss, President Obama.
