No. 118

Today was a bad day for furry and feathery critters. Saw a dead cat on the street driving to work. Then a dead possum in the parking lot. A dead sparrow and a dead pigeon along my noontime walk. Plenty of deadly variety, anyway.

Now for news from Iraq:

"We are immortal until God decides otherwise."

"I truly believe we are protected by God,"

reinforces the ... conviction that God is on their side, seeing the war [as] good versus evil.

"We are fighting darkness here, we are fighting the devil,"

"They could shoot a thousand rounds and they still would not kill me."

Evil and fanatical enemies of the US? No! US troops, of course
