By Larry Untermeyer

Co-directed by Ellen Spiro, “Body of War” focuses on Tomas Young, a 25-year-old paralyzed from a bullet to his spine who was wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week.

Donahue, a Westport resident along with his actress wife Marlo Thomas, explained how and why he came to do “Body of War” after meeting Young. He said the soldier evolved into a new person, dealing with his disability and finding his own unique and passionate voice against the war.

The film also shows how the Congress of the United States abdicated the constitutional rights that give Congress the power to declare war, Donahue said.

Court Rules Against Towns in FAA Airspace Redesign Dispute

A federal appeals court in Washington today dismissed a challenge brought against the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by a consortium of local governments, including Westport, over an airspace redesign project.

Opponents said the project would route more large planes over southwestern Connecticut while the FAA said changes in flight paths and flight procedure would reduce delays at airports in the northeast.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced that he will immediately seek a rehearing.

“This decision is dead wrong—disregarding essential legal issues, and the impact of increased noise and pollution on millions of residents and state parks,” said Blumenthal, who had argued the case before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals last month.
