We received word today that a family friend was killed in action in Afghanistan. He was supposed to come back pretty soon. His wife is expecting a child any time now. This is the first person who I know personally who's been killed in combat.
I thought this might serve as a good reminder that, while the Caucuses and Primaries are a fun diversion, we shouldn't lose sight of the real goal. The steady stream of dead young men and women will NOT end while Bush still occupies the White House. We simply have to win.
