In Mourning for Poland's Loss

The people of Poland are mourning the loss of almost their entire executive branch in the plane crash last week in Smolensk. Lech Kaszynski, his wife, many top generals, cabinet ministers, and industrialists were travelling to Katyn to commemorate the mass murder of 26,000 Polish army officers in 1940 when the plane crashed attempting to land in fog.

The pictures of the President and First Lady lying in state here at FreeRepublic are enough to make a grown man weep.

I know it did me.
