Think before you write.
The WashPost ran an article today about two Massachusetts soldiers who were killed in Iraq. Their funerals were attended by Sens. Kennedy and Kerry.
But down on the second page, this paragraph jumped out at me:
On Sept. 11, 2001, during the moments before the attacks on the World Trade Center, Gavriel had been on the phone with a friend working in one of the towers, according to the news stories. That made it clear: He would go to Iraq.
On 9/11, he knew he would go to Iraq? Wow. That's even before Bush knew he was going to Iraq.
C'mon guys (read: reporters), think about this stuff before you write it.
