michael kelly r.i.p.
I was saddened to learn this morning that Atlantic Monthly editor-at-large and Washington Post columnist Michael Kelly was killed in a vehicle accident while accompanying the US 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. Kelly is the first American journalist to be killed in the war.
While I frequently disagreed with Kelly's conservative and hawkish views, his death robs the American people of a voice to be reckoned with. I join with Kelly's friends, family and colleagues in mourning his loss.
Update: Talking Points Memo has a nice appreciation.
