Luckovich cartoon response

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has a follow up (free, annoying registration required) to the Mike Luckovich’s editorial cartoon in which he wrote the names of the 2,000 soldies that have died in the Iraq war in the word “WHY”.

About a year ago, Luckovich had a similar idea for a cartoon using President Bush’s middle initial, W, and flag-draped coffins.

“At that time I thought we were much too early in the war to lay these deaths firmly at the president’s feet,” said Tucker, who is quick to point out that she doesn’t always approve of Luckovich’s ideas despite being one of his biggest fans.

The article also mentions that Mike has a blog, which can be found here.
