Life and Death or Death and Life

Eddie Adams, famous war photographer, died a few days ago. His photos, including this one:0920edams

showed the horrors of war. The Washington Post has the story.

In other news, our latest war in Iraq has claimed the lives of another American hostage and two-dozen others across the country. Again, check out The Washington Post’s story.

Pioneering “Adult” filmmaker Russ Meyer also died in the last few days. Who can forget such classics as “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” and of course, “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”, one of the great films of all time? If you like chicks who kick ass, which I do. Just look at some of my photographs sometime.

Well, at least the work of Eddie Adams and Russ Meyer will live on so they will be remembered. The people who died in Iraq today and the people who will die in Iraq tomorrow and the next day and the next day, they don’t have that.

Let’s not forget them, even though they aren’t famous. We owe them that much.

Later.
