Mudville Gazette


After the Pulitzers decided to award a prize to a collaborater with murderers, the Mudville Gazette has called for an alternative prize. Military photographers (presumably amateur) from Iraq are encouraged to submit links with photos posted.

Greyhawk has his own favorite up at the link above. I think mine, all things considered, is this one. It has it all: servicemen, a smiling child whose brighter future was bought at those men's peril, the thumbs up, and the Iraqi kid proudly wearing a USMC t-shirt.

That about sums it up for me: service, courage, friendship, liberation.
