Cal and I were driving back from his basketball camp and we passed a small group of protesters, holding signs about drone strikes.  He was very dismissive and said that drones protect soldiers from being killed.  I was completely taken aback, both by his rather hardcore attitude and even more by his knowledge of the issue.  When I asked where he heard about drones, he said, quite matter of factly, Call of Duty (the soldier video game that he plays). I tried to gently offer a different perspective, explaining that drones kill innocent civilians, but I don't think I altered his opinion.  Yikes.
