Thanks for the reminder from Tricia:

Everyone knows Amy Winehouse died. Who are Justin Allen 23, Brett Linley 29, Matthew Weikert 29, Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Jesse Reed 26, Matthew Johnson 21, Zachary Fisher 24, Brandon King 23, Christopher Goeke 23, and Sheldon Tate 27....? All Marines that gave their lives this week for you. There is no media for them... not even a mention of their names. Honor THEM by posting this!

Amen.

We only honor the dead with a Macy's white sale. And that's only once a year.

It is America's shame.

Yes, exactly. I didn't know about the Marines, but I was surely disappointed that the media focus switched so swiftly from the loss in Norway.
