Another Hundred

For the third straight month, coalition troop deaths have exceeded 100.

Who will be July's 100?

One thing we do know ... none will be related to George Bush or Dick Cheney.


  • How many Roosevelt or Truman relatives died in WW II, or Wilson relatives in WW I, for that matter? Damn, that must mean to Macstupid that they were bad presidents.

  • Even brief exposure to secondhand smoke in bars and restaurants can result in measurable levels of a toxin in workers’ bodies that is known to cause lung cancer, U.S. researchers said on Thursday.

    They found nonsmoking workers in Oregon who worked a single shift in a bar or restaurant that allowed smoking were more likely to have a detectable level of NNK — a carcinogen linked with lung cancer — in their bodies than those who worked in nonsmoking establishments.

    “NNK is only found in the body as a result of either smoking or breathing other people’s smoke,” said Michael Stark of the Multnomah County Health Department in Portland, Oregon, whose study appears in the American Journal of Public Health.

  • Uhm ... all four of FDR's sons were officers in World War II and, according to Wikipedia, "were decorated, on merit, for bravery."

    Thanks for taking a dump on FDR and the military service of his sons. You're a true patriot Rolly.

    As Anon suggests, you need to get off the NNK.

  • After just chatting with my friend at FOB ISKAN, some boys on her team were hit with an IED and didn't die-they lost limbs. Thanks for the perspective and awareness Macswain.
