Woodruff, Vot and Jill Carrol: keep 'em in your thoughts

How many journalists will have to be wounded, captured or killed before the administration's defenders stop attacking the working press as "missing the big picture" in Iraq? It's hard to spend time counting the numbers of pencils the U.S. is sending the schools when you might be blown up or abducted for doing your job.

I would say that when your friends and co-workers are being killed, injured and abducted on a regular basis, you have a pretty clear image of the "big picture."

It's hard to learn when insurgents are sowing chaos in your cities and towns.
