"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Watching the Tragic Odometer

Attaturk pointed to this in a thread over at Eschaton.
999 dead Americans in Iraq. Do you suppose the men and women in the field have any idea? Imagine starting your patrol knowing you could be #1000.
Athenae has an idea to mark this sad milestone.
When I hear the news, I'll light a candle, too.
