I saw the interactive Times' piece with 3000 tiny links to each name of a fallen soldier. Quite a compelling tribute.

Happy New Year, may it be filled with peace and no new names on this list.

Amen.

Wow. I'm still furious at all the people who started off supporting the war who are now willing to criticize it because it's not fun anymore, but at least it's increasingly possible to criticize.

With many hopes for peace and tolerance and decency this year... happy new year!

Three thousand fallen GIs: Celeste Zappala changes the tally of U.S. soldiers slain in Iraq in the window of her office in Philadelphia. Her son, Army Sgt. Sherwood Baker (in photo), was one of those 3,000.

Well, here's hoping next year is better. Sadly, I am sure that it could be worse.
