A matter of principle
Today is Veterans Day and, hopefully, all of us have been able to pause to think about the hundreds of thousands of our countrymen and women who have been killed fighting for the rest of us. Whatever we think of the Iraq war or the Bush administration, as of today 3,860 of us have been killed and 28,451 of us have been injured, many catastrophically, to defend some kind of principle. All of them were doing what they believed was the right thing. All of us hope they were right.
