A Newsroom in Mourning

December 31, 2009

Michelle Lang is Canada's first journalist killed in Afghanistan.
My colleague James Murray in Kandahar met her on assignment there and says she was a quick wit, a sharp reporter, the kind of person we want more of in Afghanistan, not less.

Check out Michelle's Blog here. And sign a book of condolences here.

Patrick White and Graeme Smith at The Globe and Mail both have insightful reports well worth a read.

Canwest's Don Martin has this. Sad. True.

Lang becomes the 101st journalist around the world killed in the line of duty.
