News just arrived that a high school friend of my officemate - an officer named Gary Collins, from Magnolia - was killed this weekend in Iraq. It's the first casualty of anyone I know, even indirectly like this.

Like all of our soldiers, he was fighting for the good of his country and the world, and his bravery and sacrifice makes me proud to be an American. He is survived by a wife and 2 kids.
