NYT Classifieds: "Wanted: War Czar. Requires ability to publicly affect the illusion of strategic thinking and proactive problem solving, while perpetuating the hopeless, blood-drenched status quo until Jan 20, 2009 - when this whole debacle can be foisted on whichever Democrat gets inaugurated."Collapse )

You voted for this, America. Remember that. You voted Dubya in a second time, and you voted in the dickless cowards in Congress who refuse to remove him and stop the slaughter in Iraq.

A couple of interesting surprises here. First of all, I think most people associate gun deaths with gangs, generally younger people. But according to this, there were 1% more deaths in the 40+ age group (39) as there were in the 18-39 age group (38). Also, suicide by firearm is extremely common. In the 18-to-39 age group, 15 of 38 deaths (39%) were suicides. In the 40+ age group, 30 of the 39 deaths (77%) were suicides.
