    pdolan6.. and worlord.....I could not agree with you more. It has become a ho-hum story. No more weekly, monthly body counts. That is bad politics.
    I wonder other than his one photo op at Dover AFB. well over a year ago, whether the Czar in-chief or foot 'n mouth VP has been back to be with the families when the bodies of our heroes come home.
    Condolences to the family & friends of this 19 year old hero, who has been sacrificed for a poppy growing, rock pile in a 13th century foreign land

    I agree with that statement about deaths not making the news as much because knowing what lindsey lohan , charlie sheen and randy quiad have going on is more important. It's a shame that the news doesn't keep thses sacrifices in the forefront of the news EVERYDAY. Seems as if it's at a "by the way" level now.

    A dozen, brave Marines have died in Afghanistan recently. Quite a bit of nasty fighting going on over there in past three weeks, but it seems little of our troop's sacrifices makes the news now days.
