28. Media blackout...
Why arent the news pages even reporting this anymore? I keep thinking that we've suffered no casualties, and then I come here and find these reports! Yahoo home page, news.. has the important things.. like "cheney says Kerry a threat to gun rights". The troops dying appears to be a non-issue now?? How fucked up is that??
