Another "milestone" tombstone

American death toll in Iraq hits 3,000
Inaccurate? Yes. Omitting several hundred thousand other deaths for which an exact "milestone" will never happen? Yes. But still hopefully a milestone, not in the number of officially counted deaths of American soldiers under certain circumstances, but in the continued turning of American opinion not just against the war, but in favor of immediate withdrawal.

AFSC (and probably others) are coordinating the organizing of events all over the country. How successful they'll be considering that tomorrow is New Year's Day remains to be seen. What we really need is a plane towing an appropriate message over some of the Bowl Games and parades that will be happening tomorrow. Hopefully someone's thought of that.
