James Brown's provocative and, I think, utterly convincing piece arguing that political leaders should stop attending military funerals was carried this morning by the ABC's opinion website, The Drum.

As you can see, the piece has sparked a lot of activity on The Drum's comments thread, and The Drum is now running an online poll asking: 'Is there a place for politicians at military funerals?'.
