Meanwhile, Back In Iraq

The death toll continues to rise.

As of today (05/14/07), 26,188 American servicemen and women have been wounded in dubya's war in Iraq.

As of today (05/14/07) 165 Servicemen and women from Pennsylvania have been killed in dubya's war in Iraq.

Last month (April, 2007) lived up to T.S. Eliot and produced 117 American servicemen and women dead - an average of 3.9 per day. The deadliest month in 4 years.

As of this morning (7:19am on 05/14/07) the estimated cost of the war is more than: $425,590,000,000.

As the first lady has already told us the reaction she and dubya have to the bad news coming out of Iraq:
And believe me, no one suffers more than their president and I do when we watch this.
Via BarbinMd, what was dubya doing yesterday?

Why, conducting a Sousa march, of course! From the AP:
JoAnn Falletta was doing what a conductor should — concentrating on the orchestra in front of her. No wonder it took her a few seconds on Sunday to realize someone behind her was motioning for a try.
President Bush.

"Smiling at me kind of devilishly," Falletta said.

She gave him her baton and stepped aside.

Gesturing exuberantly, the president led the orchestra during part of its performance of "Stars and Stripes Forever."
And when he was finished?
Just before the music ended, Bush turned to Falletta, who stood on a step below him, kissed the top of her head and left without saying a word.
No one suffers bad news like ole dubya!
