Weekly Address: Tragedy at Ft. Hood



There's not much to add. We've all read about the individual acts of heroism that day. We've all wondered how a psychiatrist, of all people, could so tragically lose his bearings. Deep down, we all know that the victims are casualties of war as sure as if they were stationed in Baghdad or Kabul. We can only hope that this calamity reinforces the President's plans to withdraw our troops from Iraq and gives him pause as he considers increasing our commitment in Afghanistan...

The Seattle Times wants to know if Hamid Karzai's election is worth dying for. Good question...

Portraits created for families who lost theirs in Hurricane Katrina...

I don't want to beat a dead horse with the Vietnam comparisons, but I don't see much difference between militarily supporting Karzai's government and doing the same for the Ky government in the 60s.

Great link, the photo shoot. Despite all these difficult times, the American spirit rises above, whether tearing off their uniforms to make tourniquets, or taking family portraits where photos no longer exist. Thanks for highlighting that, K.
