Some fictional horrors of war

Mark Steyn’s syndicated weekly column addresses last week’s big Sunday New York Times page-one story (part 1!) on the fictitious crime wave perpetrated by American troops returning from combat. John took the Times story apart in “Crazed veterans spark nationwide crime wave.” Mark notes John’s post after introducing the theme of the Times story:

“Individually, these are stories of local crimes, gut-wrenching postscripts to the war for the military men, their victims and their communities. Taken together, they paint the patchwork picture of a quiet phenomenon, tracing a cross-country trail of death and heartbreak.”
“Patchwork picture,” “quiet phenomenon.”
