And Charlie Wilson's War Goes On


Charlie Wilson's dead but we're still a long, long way from home: SEALED WITH A KISS: A U.S. Marine read a letter covered in lipstick kisses at his outpost near Marjah, Afghanistan, Thursday. U.S. and Afghan forces were in the area to seal off escape routes ahead of a major offensive against the Taliban.

The post office has a few flat-rate boxes that let you send as much as you can pack in them for a low price. Clearly this soldier has someone back home who has discovered this.

I'm glad he's getting stuff from home.

What a great photo. Thank you, Marine, and RIP, Charlie Wilson.
