Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Get Fuzzy and Doonesbury, simulatenously and apparently coincidentally, have brought us moving, incredibly artful stories this week with characters that have each lost a leg in Iraq. There was already a football connection with B.D. of Doonesbury - now that there is a baseball connection, I feel good about posting about it. I've paused after each square within each comic, savoring each little chapter, before moving on.

Update: It took me a day to realize I had posted this on the same day that the death of NFL star Pat Tillman in Afghanistan was reported. I don't have the words to make sense of it all, but I think I can say, sincerely, that Tillman will be in B.D.'s thoughts, as he and others who have fallen are in ours.
