One of the good guys

C.C. Chapman, a formidable new media guy, actually knew the team at Alive in Baghdad. He writes about Ali Shafeya's killing. He provides information on how to donate to Ali's family to help defray the cost of the funeral. Actually, you can go to the team's site and Chip In there. Consider that Ali Shafeya was not only 22, but the last surviving male member of his family. We have to ask ourselves, what will they do now?

People, this is as if a Doctors Without Borders volunteer were killed. Every murder is tragic in this malevolent war, but killings like this are beyond reprehensible.

And while I'm on the subject, forego that extra bottle of champagne and send some love to Doctors Without Borders this holiday season.
