Real Life, Real People

Whether a rightie or a lefty, stiff or bleeder, I think most Americans are compassionate and can find it in their hearts to reach out to those in need. IMHO, one of the real tragedies of the invasion and occupation of Iraq is the lack of media coverage of the death, misery and suffering the Iraqi people are forced to endure everyday. These are not "tearists", not 9/11 sympathizers, not people who "hate our way of life", but innocent human beings caught in the political and ideological crossfire, not so different from the good folks of the Gulf states. Kudos to the New York Times for making a small inroad toward exposing us to this untold saddness.
