I've added an item to our gutter on the left of this page, "blowin' in the wind." It's the updated cost of the Iraq war, in human casualties. The current number of US dead is 555. I don't think we'll ever be able to imagine the magnitude of human loss. The subject line, as you probably know, is from a song by Bob Dylan that we used to sing as kids.
...Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
