Hostages Released!

According to the Globe & Mail, the surviving Christian Peacemaker Team hostages in Iraq -- including James Loney, whom I met a few times doing anti-war and anti-militarism stuff in Hamilton, Ontario -- have been released.

I'm not a religious man, but if I were, I would be thanking God right about now.

It's so sad that their American comrade Tom Fox didn't make it out as well.

Yes...thank-you for adding that. His name and loss should not be forgotten even as we are thankful for the release of the others.
