Sorry, been out of pocket a bit but still following the case of the appalling decision of the AP to show the photo of a young hero in his final moments. The Mudville Gazette has a great roundup roundup of what the Milblog community has to say about this. Having attended the funeral of an 18 yo hero this past week and seeing his parents faces, there is no way that ANYTHING justifies publication of this photo! NOTHING!

Joshua “Bernie” Bernard, you will never be forgotten.
