Would someone please explain to me why it was necessary to memorialize fallen Iraq War journalists at Crampton's Gap battlefield given that dead combat reporters already have a memorial in downtown Washington D.C.?
I just ran across this website yesterday and was surprised to see that not only were the same newsfolk honored in both places, but that some of the same VIPs attended both ceremonies.
In the endless piling on of additional public uses for "protected" battlefield land, in the rush to multipurpose "hallowed ground," we have finally achieved total redundancy and complete meaninglessness in one corner of Crampton's Gap battlefield.
May I recommend, for simplicity's sake, a single purpose for consecrated ground?
Confusion may have engendered this mess but nihilism sustains it. Nihilism ("What difference does it make?") and entropy.
