There will be plenty of baseball talk in a little bit, but first let me share this link. It’s to the NPR Web site, which there links to a report by KUOW’s Austin Jenkins that aired nationally1.
I’ve been past (and eaten at) Galloping Gertie’s near the Freedom Bridge in Lakewood, and I’ve noticed the signboard that lists the names of the Washington-based soldiers who most recently died in Iraq. It also lists the total number of war dead.
Turns out the restaurant’s owner is staunchly pro-troops but also anti-war. Find a few minutes to listen to this story. It’s well worth it.
1 – Actually, all over the world thanks to the Web. I first was alerted to the story by a good friend of mine studying in New Zealand. Thanks, Geoff!
