    I was just reading a Time magazine that's been sitting in the junk mail pile for a few days and came across a short article noting the passing on April 9 of Richard E. Cole, age 103, co-pilot of Jimmy Doolittle and last surviving member of the raid. What is tragic isn't the unsurprising passing of a 103 year old, but the lack of attention and coverage it received. I had similar feelings as the last WWl veterans left us a few years ago. I just wish our news media had different priorities than it presently has.
