The Taliban also kill a Canadian journalist

Michelle Lang of the Calgary Herald; one can understand the ordering in the headline. Ms Lang had a blog. This beautiful photograph of hers ends up all too relevant:
Panjwaii is a volatile and dangerous district for the Canadian Forces. In October, an improvised explosive device killed Lieut. Justin Boyes during a foot patrol in Panjwaii...
Update: More from Patrick White of the Globe and Mail (via Terry Glavin).

I originally had a similar opinion to the way in which this is all being reported, but after some though, I changed my mind.

I would imagine that the reason for the headline and amount of space being dedicated to the reporter is because they simply don't have any personal details on the fallen soldiers yet. It's unfortunate, but it takes time to alert the family before informing the public.
