dear hjs,
the reason mr.hastings does not have a wikipedia entry is that nobody wrote one.
do some research and write one for him yourself, if you feel the need so strongly.
to do one's own wikipedia entry is by and large considered to be bad form indeed, which might be the reason he didn't do it himself.

It is offensive Michael Hastings compares WWII and the US attack on Iraq. Outrageous!

What is this guy thinking???!!

I am sorry to hear about your loss. Why was Andy killed? Why would she have been targeted. She doesn't sound as if she was a threat. Was it strictly her citizenship?
