Today's Best...

Pat Tillman: I never understood what purpose withholding information from a person's family would serve, unless the military really doesn't want people to trust them. Information withheld from the public? No problems there. But Tillman's parents, his new wife and his siblings should've known how their brother died. This doesn't make his choice any less admirable, but someone should be ashamed of the disservice they did to the man's family. [Washington Post]
"Notifying families in a timely way that they have had a loved one killed or severely injured is complex and imperfect work. We can do better," said Paul Boyce, an Army spokesman. "At the heart of every notification effort is a commitment to compassion and completeness in providing information as it is known to those who sustained the loss. That is what happened in the case of
Corporal Tillman, and that effort continues to this day."
