Y'all check out this post - another good one from The Thunder Run.
A letter from Mr. Stokely - Is Iraq Worth It?
For those of you that do not know, Mr. Stokely is the father of Sgt Mike Stokely who was killed in battle on August 16, 2005. Mr. Stokely sent a letter to the Washington Post to let them know that he supports the mission in Iraq, but the Post would not print it. Well, the blogoshere did and Mr. Stokely is now read world wide thanks to us.
While newspaper readership dwindles, interent news and blog readership continues to soar and it is no wonder. No where can you receive at the touch of a button so many views on one topic as you can via the interent.
And so without further ado I give you Mr. Stokely in his own words:Even now, people continue to be curious about whether I think "Iraq" is worth it - that is, worth Mike's death.
