Memorial reading: Anthony Shadid Reporter Anthony Shadid survived a gunshot wound, bombing raids, and traveling across the Middle East during two tumultuous decades, only to die in Syria earlier this year of an asthma attack triggered by horse hair. "War is hell," William Tecumseh Sherman said after pillaging Atlanta. Shadid's death goes to show that it's also absurd. His death was followed shortly by the release of a book of Shadid's essays, all of which are thoughtful and authoritative. Shadid's friends and colleagues will also be in attendance to share stories.
