Commentator Ruth Stonesifer's son was one of the first U.S. war-related fatalities in Afghanistan.
Morning Edition - November 7, 2003

Suggested by Donna, who listens to WTEB in New Bern, North Carolina:
"I have 'hairdryer moments', and 'toothbrush monents', when what is on the radio is so interesting that I don't want to do anything that will drown out what is being said. This morning I listened to a woman talk about her son, an Army Ranger, who was killed early in the war. I sat, half dressed, on my bed all alone and cried as I haven't cried since 9/11."
