Gallows Humor 

Say what you will about Lynddie England - you have to give her credit for snark. CNN is reporting that the judge in PFC England's court martial may reject her guilty plea, but the article goes on to describe some of the, um, personalities involved in the case (emphasis supplied):
[Spc. Charles] Graner, who is said to be the father of England's infant son, Carter England, born in October, is now married to Spec. Megan Ambuhl, one of the four guards to plead guilty in the scandal....

Graner was also busted from a rank of specialist following his conviction, and is to be dishonorably discharged when he is released from prison. Leaving court on Tuesday, Graner handed out a written statement saying he found England's guilty plea "upsetting" but hopes it will bring her an easier sentence.

England, however, appeared resentful toward Graner. As the courtroom sketch artist, Pat Lopez, was drawing him, England leaned over to her and said, "Don't forget the horns."
