A "Wow" story

The lgf: Heroism and Cowardice story, about a marine who lay dying, but nonetheless offered the ultimate sacrifice to save his unit, is almost Victorian in its purity of spirit. I also link to it because it ties in with an earlier post I did about the fact that our media is reflexively anti-American. After reading my book about the Spanish Influenza, I am reminded how important a free press is. It's okay that they investigate and criticize the government. What's not okay is that this is all that they do, without any balance in their own approach.
