« Tragicomic | Main | Results of "Pre-Memorial Day Iraqi Prime Minister Handicap" Revised! »

May 31, 2004

Memorial Car

Because it's Memorial Day (and, perhaps, because the Administration has tried intensely for weeks to suppress attention to American losses) there couldn't be a higher awareness today about the human cost of war.

What brought some of the reality to me was a photo piece in yesterday's NYT Week In Review profiling a few people who had lost someone in Iraq. For example, this young guy inherited his buddy's car.

Here's the link for the article. What's better, though, is the slide show. (The slide show link can also be found with the article, just to the right.) Of course, it would have been more thoughtful -- at least this one time -- if The Times had left off the advertisement.
