  •  Coverage (none)
    Our local newspaper had a huge spread on a returning vet rehabbing from amputation. I read the article, searching for one hint of either his or editorial comments about the Noble Cause - some bitterness, something. But it was all about his struggles to deal with the injury. I wondered how this young man felt - angry, betrayed?

    The last I heard was that they were not going to issue further statements about Woodruff, possibly because his injuries were that severe.

    •  Or possibly because (none)
      he's in a persistant vegetative state, but Frist hasn't seen the video yet.

      •  Actually (none)
        snark aside, this was my first thought when I read about the news blackout. They never talk about PVS.

        back to snark - except that the media DOES cover Bush, who is in a permanent PVS

        •  I've seen Bush on TV (none)
          and his eyes follow people in the room, and moaning sounds come out of his mouth. It sounds like "please...help...me".
