I managed to avoid most news this weekend. DSD and I spend Saturday with my parents and we visited instead of watching TV. On Sunday there was house cleaning, laundry, homework and video games to be played. The only news I recieved concerned the NCAA tournament, and I got most of that by accident.
So, imagine how great it was to start my car this morning and get slapped in the face first thing by the news that the number of Americans killed in Iraq has reached 4,000.
This news is being blogged about all over the web. And it is being done much more eloquently by others than I could ever hope to provide. So, forgive me, but I liked my life better when I was living under a rock this weekend. I think I will go back there now.
