I hate this damn war
I never met Andrew Olmsted. I was involved in a handful of group conversations with him over at Obsidian Wings, where he was a front page poster, and while we only agreed half the time at best, he was always honest and direct in his arguments, and respectful of his fellow posters. He was killed in Iraq yesterday. If you're a visitor to that blog, you might want to go over and leave a note in the thread I linked to above.
