"War -- What is it good for?"

The Canucks got waxed tonight. The boys can't show up flat-footed against the Stars or they'll get served heads on platters, man.

And I saw this powerful image in Stumble Upon. Photojournalism (2nd Place) Picture of the Year, for The Rocky Mountain News. Really makes Bruce Springsteen's classic "War" hit home.

For context, you must read this caption first:

Todd Heisler The Rocky Mountain News
The night before the burial of her husband's body, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of 'Cat,' and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. "I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it," she said. "I think that's what he would have wanted."
