Thanks again, George

Bob Herbet has a story today about a new HBO documentary, "Baghdad ER."

The movie does not shrink from those instances in which the G.I.'s do not survive. We see doctors all but begging the patient to make it. We see buddies weeping. We see a chaplain speaking softly to a mortally wounded marine:

"We don't want you to go. We want you to fight. ... But if you can't, it's O.K. to go. It's O.K. to go. But we'll be right with you. If you get better, or if you go."

Somebody's friend, somebody's brother, somebody's son.
