This is a coincidence worth passing along.
This morning on 5×8, I brought back a post I originally wrote four years ago on Wednesday about this picture.

This morning, NPR aired a story with the woman who was the subject of that post, the mother of the first American killed in the first Gulf War.
It was part of the Story Corps presentation. You can listen to it here.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
