That's a great letter. Let me know if they print it.

(Scratch scratch) I hate it when my anti-American inflamation flames up.

Great post.

When the children of Iraq are dying now under American occupation at higher rates than they did under the rule of Saddam -- someone should have the common sense to stop and take a hard look at their objectives. There should be honest answers to questions of just how large the insurgency is, and whether or not our presence is now hindrance or help. These conclusions can't be made by any politician sitting behind his safe desk in Washington. That Saddam should be acceptable under one republican's watch, and then decades later unacceptable under another is . . . unacceptable. I know, 9/11 -- and they have dark skin. Dear God in heaven, what has our nation become?

Remember, truth is anti-American in Bushevik America.

Blessed be the truthtellers, for they shall be shot down by bullets in the streets and hounded whenever they dare tell the truth in the light of day, and congratulations to the Pulitzer board (which included the editor of the very conservative Washington Times) for refusing to cave to that pressure.

Bushevik America? Now I'm going to have to change my pants before I can be serious again. Tux, you are a very bad Penguin.

Then there are those who look at the pics of dead children and their tingly spinal column response is, "Yeah, well, in a few years he/she'd have been one of 'them'. That's one less. Cheers."

If that's the thought, then *why* do we have troops there dying? Why? Damn circular nonlogic!

I had to rachtet up my respect for the Pulizter Committee ever since I was introduced to the Maus series by Spiegelman -- and the fact that they created a special category for his use of comic book media to tell the story of the holocaust -- so they could award him the 1992 prize.

Thank you for helping to direct attention to AP's photojournalism award. Maybe LIFE mag will do a special. Or was it LOOK that was resurrected? I can't remember.
