Senior Producer for the PBS series NOW Joel Schwartzberg has been sending me tips on stories relevant for C&Lers for several months now. Normally, I get them on Monday or Tuesday as a heads up for Friday's show. Say what you will of Tomlinson's influence on public broadcasting, NOW has been producing consistently excellent programming that relies on facts, not bias.

To complement their program yesterday, NOW is offering on their website some interviews with deploying soldiers and their families from Ft. Stewart.

Joel: I'm proud to draw your attention to a moving and insightful web-exclusive piece on NOW Online and YouTube. In a complement to our report about soldiers returning to the front in Iraq, we interview three married couples at Georgia's Fort Stewart who share their unique fears and anxieties about not just going to Iraq, but returning for a second or third tour of duty. Some concerns are new, others stay the same. The stories are grippingly real.

Please pass along this email to friends and colleagues for a look past the rhetoric and political posturing, into the hearts of those sacrificing everything for country.
