CNN is sickening
on the morning show, they are doing "headlines". They hold up a newspaper from Indiana. One of the headlines is about a soldier from a Valparaiso (spelling?), IN being killed in Iraq. They sit and joke around about another headline about the price of milk.

I would be horrified if my husband was that soldier pictured and they were joking around about the price of a gallon of milk.

Had to get that out of my system.

3. Valpariso
should be incensed. I'm sure that it would surprise the bubble headed anchors that people have feelings, and that this soldier's friends and relatives are in mourning and don't need to have the price of milk joked about while his picture is on the national news.
