CNN War Correspondent Marie Colvin Killed in Syria Bombing of Homs

Marie Colvin, CNN War Correspondent, Killed in Syria Bombing of HomsCNN
In all seriousness, this is not comedic post in any way. Marie Colvin was a top notch journalist and war correspondent who obviously risked her life to report from the most dangerous places in the world and unfortunately we lost her. Marie was killed in the Syrian city of Homs during an artillery attack. As the Sydney Morning Herald explains:

Colvin, who won a slew of awards for her foreign reporting, died after the Homs house she was staying in was hit by rockets that also killed the French photographer Remi Ochlik, and injured photographer Paul Conroy, another US journalist and seven activists. She was apparently trying to escape when she was fatally injured.
