MY COLLEAGUE BOB LLOYD attended the pro-troops protests in Washington yesterday, and just got back this morning. Here are some pictures he took, with his captions:

“This is Margaret Johnson, holding a picture of her son, Captain
Christopher Johnson, an Army helicopter pilot killed in action in Iraq.”

x-Sherri&Sophia.JPG

“This Sophia Gilsdorf and Sherri Francescan, both of whose husbands are Marine Lieutenants serving in Iraq.”

x-GSFamOnStage-3.JPG

“Here are some of the people who lost sons, husbands and brothers. The speaker is a Texas firefighter whose twin brother was killed.”

Presumably, Maureen Dowd would accord all these people, who support the war, “absolute moral authority,” too. Right?
