    Todays news report from Iraq that the acclaimed war photographer
    James Nachtwey and a reporter Michael Weisskopf were severely
    injured in Iraq. Insurects tossed a granade into the humvee.
    The team survived only due to fast reflexes of Michael Weisskopf,
    who tossed the granade out of the car and probably lost his arm
    in the process. The news are very vaugue about details for now.

    Nice to see Weisskopf had the balls to pick up the grenade and try to
    toss it. Probably saved at least two if not 4 lives. I hope he doesn't
    lose his hand or arm (the article says "serious injury to"...) and that
    everyone recoves well.

    Tragic news indeed.

    I have heard they were riding in a US military Humvee.

    Press or not, in a war zone that makes them fair game...

    Excelsior, you fatheads!
