I've been offline for about ten days, touring the State of Maine without access to the Internet. Didn't even watch TV, except to view the endless reporting of the JonBenet matter (won't that case ever die?) and so it was a shock to me to learn that yesterday eight US soldiers were killed in Iraq. Eight in one day!
After I get back to SB, I'd better not leave again for a while because you folks aren't to be trusted with our troops.
Update: Make that eleven soldiers. Eleven!
