It is better to be the widow of a hero than the wife of a coward.

The first media casualty of the George W. Bush presidential campaign was recorded at 9:49 Saturday morning, when New York Times photographer Ann Molin was knocked off a small podium at the Cedar Rapids airport and fell flat on her face.
The goons pushed me off, Molin said of the security guards who muscled her while she was shooting the candidate hugging and hand-shaking his way through a pumped-up crowd over the blare of Stevie Wonder music.
