My letter to the NY Times Public Editor 
Thank you and Mr. Borders for the thoughtful reply.

I still don't get it, though. Is the editorial policy at the NY Times such that you may misrepresent the last letters home of any individual KIA, and dishonor their memory by making them look like whiners and cynics, if only you raise a different argument somewhere else, under another dead soldier's name.

This is somehow acceptable?

Because this is what you're arguing. But you cannot write a balanced piece when individual components in the story are distorted beyond recognition.

Would you be comfortable showing this misrepresentation to thus Marine's family? Because obviously they didn't feel the piece was either fair nor balanced with regard to their individual loved one.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
