We Will Never Forget

Sadly, it's true -- they don't care about you. Even on Fox News, the main story and several links beneath it are related to Michael Jackson, as is the breaking news headline. The story of First Lieutenant Brian Bradshaw, killed in action on the same day (thought not in Kheyl, as both the Military Times and FNC report), is overshadowed and relegated to a side story.
Where are our priorities? Since when have the men and women dying for our country been so far less important than the death of a man ridiculed for his appearance and shunned for allegations in life, only to be mourned passionately in death?
