The Ebay Answer

Yet another solution for those troops who comb scrap heaps looking for armor for their Humvees in Iraq. The London Underground admits now that it shops for parts on ebay. Afterall, Vice President Dick Cheney sang the praises of ebay as a boon to the economy during the campaign. Legend has it that when General George Patton ran into massive mounds of red tape trying to get replacement parts for his tanks prior to World War II, an enterprising NCO simply ordered the needed parts from Sears & Roebuck.
