I don't give a lot of props to the Seattle Times around here, but once in awhile the home team comes through with a big hit, as they did by running this front page image yesterday. One of the most despicable features of the Bush administration and their lackeys in the Rumsfeld DOD is the practice of hiding our war dead as though they don't exist.
So here's a hurrah for the Times for running this on page one. The picture came to them via Seattle native Tami Silicio, who works as a contract employee at a Kuwait cargo terminal. She sent it along, saying "So far this month, almost every night we send them home... It's tough. Very tough."
And she's one of my heroes right now.
