War and peace

This American Life has reprinted Lee Sandlin’s excellent Losing the War, which originally appeared in the Chicago Reader in 1997.

In the article, Sandlin notes the vast gap “between the experience of war and the experience of peace” and tries to figure out what it was really like to serve in World War II, as his father did.

Incidentally, while I’m not going to stop worrying and raging about the war on Iraq, I think I’m going to take a break from discussing it here.

But first, here’s a photo from and a link to a description of last Saturday’s anti-war march in New York City.
