More awful news

And, yet a third son of Connecticut has given his life in Iraq, this time from Wilton. We don't have a photo yet, but please keep Nicholas Madaras and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Just 19, he died when an IED blew up in Baqubah, Iraq.

19 years old...God.

If I ever start to doubt why I spend so much time doing this stuff, I just think about all those kids who won't see their 20th birthday.

Then I realize it's a tiny price for me to pay, compared to what they and their families pay.

And every dead kid just makes me want to work harder.

Has there ever been a debate where it was so obvious which side has the moral high ground?
