From the Frontlines
Kevin Leininger has a great column in today's N-S -- so good that they put it on the front page above the fold. It's about a Fort Wayne man who is currently serving in Iraq as a chaplain in the Marines. We'll quote the opening paragraph (which is usually the toughest nut for a columnist to crack) as an illustration of its quality:
