Are Returning Soldiers Being Sent Back to Iraq?
I'm listening to a local talk show right now on KVOR in Colorado Springs. A caller just said he found out earlier today that a friend of his who returned just last week after serving a year in Iraq received notice that he has to return to Iraq. His friend found this out on his wife's birthday.

Has anyone else heard about similar stories????

2. On a case by case basis...
they aren't just turing back entire units as soon as they hit the dirt CONUS.

4. Starting up the draft before the election would hurt Bush's ...
chances for being legitimately elected this time around. So our troops must make the sacrifice for the good of Bush.

Help is on the way indeed.

7. Did You Happen To Hear Me Yesterday?
On Joseph Michelli's afternoon show? I was the one who referred to Bush as an "addle-minded, alcoholic buffoon".

12. I'm Easy To Spot
They usually refer to me as "Wayne from Pueblo" or "Wayne on a cell phone".
