Journalist casualties have been as depressing as military casualties, and probably viscerally more so because they are people we bring into our homes, on TV, on radio, and in print. Michael Kelly and David Bloom, in particular, have been part of my life for the past few years. I was so favorably impressed with what Michael Kelly was doing at the Atlantic Monthly that I subscribed, instead of reading it sporadically at the library. Just Thursday, in fact, I was on a plane returning from DC and using the time to catch up on my April and May issues. Following Andrew Sullivan, I recommend Maureen Dowd’s eulogy in the Washington Post.
