    Sad day in my office

    We got word yesterday that three Marines showed up at a coworker's house at midnight Monday to tell him his son had been killed by an IED in Fallujah. My God, what a waste!

    It's all a fricken waste, Olebiker. This whole war thing is a waste.

    I'm sorry to hear of this. My condolences to your co worker, his family and to those whose lives he touched.

    This majorly sucks.

    It depresses me to think how many more families will be touched by this utterly useless engagement.

    It would be nice if we could just take our bat and ball and leave the game, unfortunately our "decider" has gotten us into the proverbial rock and hard place situation.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I'm so sorry to hear that.

    Thats a lotta X's. But lets not forget the wounded either. Losing limbs, becoming paralyzed, and losing control of your bowels and bladder is a price that all too many people have paid.
