Are We There Yet?

Here we are 4 days into my favorite month and we have lost 8 more of our future in Iraq, bringing the total loss to 1941 U.S. dead and untold Iraqi and others. I was just wondering if we are getting close to the magic number? You know the number of pointless deaths where the supporters of our continued occupation begin to question the value of continuing to flail away at the hopeless cause and call for a halt to the senseless mayhem.

There are a lot of exciting things happening to distract us from this most important question but we need to keep asking it everyday and with every death. It is only going to get worse and the upcoming vote on the constitution will just bias the going bad one way or the other.

I guess I will just keep hoping that today will be the day we hit the magic number. Maybe we can hope that all the bad news for Dubya and company will be some sort of catalyst and heterodyne with the pain of so many lost for no reason and trigger a revelation in the people that continue to support the tragedy. Then again, that may be desparation talking.
