Now that's interesting!

Some numbers came up in passing on yesterday's NPR report on the anguish over the Veteran's Administration failure to budget for the war casualties. While all the fervor was aimed at the failure to budget properly, the news report talked about how the plans its budget three years earlier so that when it was doing figures for 2005 it was doing them before the war and hadn't planned for the additional needs of "80,000" people. If we add those numbers to the over 1700 dead in Iraq, just what is the cost to our soldiers in this war that didn't need to be fought?

Actually, Chuck, I think the number of wounded-so far- is 103,000.

Write more often, we need you.
