Battlefield glow

THE GLOW on a 21st-century battlefield is more likely to come from a laptop than a campfire. And some of those laptops have produced "the blogs of war" that John Hockenberry has profiled in the August 2005 Wired magazine. They deserve bookmarking because some of them are books in their own right. I'm trawling around them at the moment to see how the story of Cindy Sheehan is resonating among active duty bloggers of the US military. Here are my regular milblog reads that will inform my judgment:

For a balanced read, go watch Green Day -- "Wake Me Up When September Ends" video (52 MB mov). JD Lasica marvels at the Hollywood set that makes the video rock.
Lance Gay -- Cindy Sheehan: I am not the issue"
