War Pictures 

Not so long ago, the Bush administration was arguing against the nation's right to see flag-covered coffins shipped home from Iraq. This alone is a sad critique of how much access U.S. citizens have to the lives of troops overseas. The "greatest generation," as it is often called, kicked Hitler's ass without undue restrictions on journalistic access. You can see more than 100 photographs from all theaters of that war at the Memories of WWII exhibit, which opens today at the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum (500 West U.S. Highway 24 in Independence). All of the images belong to the Associated Press; many have not been seen since World War II ended. The exhibit runs through January 11 and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission costs $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $3 for ages 6-15; children ages 5 and younger are admitted free. All day today, veterans are welcomed free of charge. Call 816-268-8200 or see trumanlibrary.org for more information.
