AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE - Back in 2003 my friend Michael was a journalist with TIME Magazine. He was in a Humvee in Iraq. He was there to report back to you on the war.
Michael's wife worked with me. There were several times when they were over at our house and we talked, we ate shrimp, we laughed, and we drank too much. We attended several events together. Michael and Judith traveled to New York to attend our wedding. Michael is an award-winning investigative reporter and book author. He had been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
Back to the Humvee. Michael, an accompanying photographer, and several soldiers were in a Humvee when a grenade was tossed into it. Michael grabbed the grenade and started to toss it out the window when it exploded. Michael got shrapnel in his chest, in his arm, and he lost his right hand and lower part of his right arm. He took the brunt of the explosion and saved three lives.
I thought you might want to meet one of the enemies of the people.
