Media Alert

My friend, Lisa Ramaci, is appearing on Fox News Channel around 4:00 p.m. EDT today. Lisa is the widow of Steven Vincent, a journalist who was killed in Basrah, Iraq last August. Steven and I started corresponding when he was writing a blog to compliment his book "In the Red Zone."

Lisa will be giving an opinion somewhat different than that of Michael Berg whom we've been seeing again since the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Please tune in to watch Lisa. And please remember both Lisa and Michael in your thoughts and prayers. They have both suffered loss in the Global War on Terror.

Dang, I missed that. I will check and see if they have a video of that interview.

Like you, I started reading and emailing Steven "back when". I remember telling him on more than one occasion that he was making enemies by having such a close relationship with his ladyfriend, no matter what it actually was. Later when he started getting in deep into the mess that was (is) Southern Iraq and the infiltration of Iranians and the corruption of the Police, I brought up again that it was dangerous work he was engaged in.

I don't remember the exact reply, but it was the about the same as he had stated on his blog many times, that it was something that needed to be done and that he had to do. He was a driven man.

God Bless and keep him and give his wife happiness.
