America braces for 2000th dead soldier in Iraq
I read this headline today. The news media predicts this grim upcoming milestone like another Hurricane. Just chomping at the bit for the next casualty. Do we need to talk about our military death toll like Superfresh’s 2000th customer? Do balloons fall? Does he or she get a coupon for $5 off a Swiffer? How about we just focus on mourning the current dead, not the future.
