Me too


Yes, this is a grim subject. We can discuss such things and still hold onto our sense of humor, though.

In fact, we should!

Judging from your presentation thus far......I don't believe that will be a problem.....

I am from a military family, though. I have a little cousin who is fighting in Iraq right now. There is a psychological need to perserve certain illusions.


I had a brother over there.....am fortunate that he returned safe....so I can relate......and I do agree that certain illusions need to be preseved, but I tend to make concessions for the possibilities that are blatant offenses on them as well......helps to keep my objectivity.........

Tacky? Who Cares?

I'm with you on this. Still, I don't wish to seem heedless of the sorrow of those who have lost loved ones.

Every victim here was loved by someone, and it is heartbreaking to consider what that truly means.

Yet, that said, I think you're right. When humor leaves us, our souls become parched, cracked and ultimately wither away.

To my discredit, I seem to have forgotten that lately, and am grateful for the reminder.

So let's not forget that even death has its funny side.

Fourteen Iraqis shot dead and left at a Baghdad garbage dump were Sunni Arabs, relatives say, raising the spectre of deeper sectarian strife in Iraq following mass killings of Shi'ites.

Relatives of the victims, witnesses and a police official said the dead were farmers from the town of Madaen just south of Baghdad, where tit-for-tat kidnappings and killings between Shi'ites and Sunnis have sparked tension across Iraq.
A resident who saw a man digging a grave in an industrial area of Baghdad alerted police to the corpses early yesterday. Some were blindfolded and shot through the head execution-style.

Officials say it is unclear who killed the Iraqis, but they say insurgents are trying to spark civil war.

Although this is not confirmed yet, there is no doubt the insurgents are hell bent on starting a civil war.
