The times they are a-changing repeats an AP story about U.S. military personnel who have deserted to Canada to avoid service in Iraq or Afghanistan.
When Army Sgt. Patrick Hart decided a decade ago that he would not serve in the war in Iraq, he expected to follow the same path as thousands of American war resisters during the Vietnam era and take refuge across the border.
But after five years of wrangling with the Canadian immigration system, he came back to the U.S. -- and ended up in a military prison.
I wonder what tune Bob Dylan would compose for this change in policy and attitude.
