Ms. Jordan discussed the Washington Post’s coverage of the National Victory Celebration parade to be held the following day in Washington, DC. The parade, which was officially hosted by President Bush and funded, Ms. Jordan said, with over $3 million from the Department of Defense, was supported by those wishing to congratulate returning soldiers with a gala celebration and excoriated by those wishing the money spent on the parade be channeled into a more productive activity. Opponents also criticized the glorification of weapons of war in the parade. close
