Granted, this is a National Election year. But, would you put State Fairs and a foreign automobile manufacturer ahead of our Men and Women risking their lives in our name? This weekend’s editions of the New York Times included one story about two Afghan Ministers (Sunday, Aug. 5th) and a bottom of the page index mentioning a number of inter-tribal killings. I realize it is not quite what we deserve from the Journalism Sector, but, given the past month’s reporting, this is a start in the right direction.
It is my most sincere hope that the New York Times, and every other newsprint outlet, keep the stories of our Troops in the forefront of National reporting. The lives of each and every Man and Woman in our Armed Forces effects the lives of each and every U.S. Citizen. As a Country, we owe them all the respect we can garner.
