The good news
: The Washington Post’s Peter Baker flew to Kuwait with the freed POWs and so he got their story.
“We weren’t POWs very long,” Young noted. “I don’t know how the guys in Vietnam made it. I wouldn’t have made it.”
: The Today show (and probably others) eavesdropped — no, gawked — on the first phone call from Spec. Shoshana Johnson to her family. It was unseemly for us all to watch as this brave woman finally reached her family and the tears came out. I want to hear the story and see the drama, too, but a little privacy is the least we can give them.
