Pearl Remembered

A private memorial service is being held today in Los Angeles for Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and killed by Islamic militants in Pakistan. The 38-year-old Pearl grew up in the San Fernando Valley and graduated from Stanford. His widow is pregnant with their first child.

In the nation´s capital last night President Bush urged journalists to honor Pearl by writing letters to his soon-to-be born son. Bush said he would add his own letter.
