War, grief, and families...Keeping count "by the numbers" (army parlance) tells us that more than 2,600 of our young warriors have died for their country in this war. But these dead are more than statistics. It galls me that they are not being given the honor and recognition they deserve.

"Our Darling Baby-Asleep in Jesus" George Bush, brash and cocky to the end, with his two old sidekicks Rumsfeld and Cheney, have merely confirmed for me that old men map out the details (not very well, in this case) then send out the young to do their dirty work and to die for their elders' errors/lack of judgment/or good sense.
SHARE Tuesday, September 12, 2006 I have questions:
I am old, but I remember the long-ago Sunday afternoon when our staticky, battery-operated old Crosley brought us the news of Pearl Harbor. And I remember the shock of 9/11/01. Both were tragedies of staggering proportions, and I want to take nothing from the day-long memorial for the victims. When (if ever) will it be time to hold a memorial service for the 2,700 men and women who have died in Iraq?
