Chandra Levy's body found

The remains of Chandra Levy have been found in a park in northwestern Washington, DC. One of the ways that some people used to measure how much America was "back" from 9/11 was a return to interest in and gossip about the disappearance of Chandra Levy and what if any role deposed Congressman Gary Condit had in her disappearance. Now that her body has actually been found, I hope that people will remember that whatever tawdriness and scandal may have been associated with this case, the only thing that mattered was that a vibrant young woman had vanished from the face of the earth, leaving behind family and friends who would have to endure a grotesque intrusion on their grief. Maybe now they'll be able to find some solace.

Rest in peace, Chandra.
