Michael Kelly

There's a report on the sometimes-wrong Free Republic saying the Washington Post contributor and Atlantic Monthly editor Michael Kelly was killed outside the Baghdad airport. No independent confirmation yet. Original source listed as ABC Radio.

Michael Kelly's Washington Post archive, including his last article "Across the Euphrates."

Update: Damn....the Washington Post confirms.

Michael Kelly, the Atlantic Monthly editor-at-large and Washington Post columnist who abandoned the safety of editorial offices to cover the war in Iraq, has been killed while traveling with the Army's 3rd Infantry Division.

My prayers go out to the family of this great writer and editor. He'll be missed.
