1. Per CNN, I'm sure this is "less than a half dozen."

5. CNN Counting Terminology
5 Dear Soldiers = Less Than a Half Dozen. Maybe GW Bush can start reading counting books to the 1st graders using CNN arithmetic.

3. Yeah.
Lunaville had linked to an AP story on Yahoo saying five dead, but that story isn't up anymore. The newest AP story, up maybe five minutes ago, is saying five wounded. But there are other sources saying two dead. All this concerning fire from the mosque.

Gonna have to let the dust settle.
