Nobody Died When Paris Cried

On the left: a coddled heiress, crying because she may have lost her freedom for the next 45 days. She was reported as crying, "It's Not Right... "Mom!"

A media obsession.

On the right: a crying Sharon Swisher, mother of Army Staff Sgt. Chris Swisher, who was killed in Baghdad on October 9, 2003.

She, and so many others like her- a media omission.

I wonder how many of our soldiers in Iraq cried out "It's not right!"..."Mom"... as they felt their life force leave their bodies.
