How about the statistics for the Iraqi people? A approx. count can be found at http://www.iraqbodycount.org/.

Most Americans tend to overlook this sad, but real statistic.


Keep the peace,

Trey

the problem is that iraqbodycount.org's stats aren't up to date...

If you get time it maybe a good idea to add another category to the forums... "The Economy"
A place were people could discuss the woes and perils of our current economic problems and the proposed solutions by out political leadership. Since this is going to be a key issue to everyone for at least the next couple of years.

Whatever happened to this idea? :?:

Yeah, we've been asking for this since Wed Dec 12, 2007 10:16 am.

Now that all your college applications are done, you have LOTS of free time! Sooooo, what's the hold-up? :evil:





BTW, I think the Rick345 suggestion above is pretty good.

Oh well. That was an anticlimax. In the words of the divine Oscar, there is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
