And Just Because

I know that someone is going to take umbrage with my remark about Washington D.C. being the murder capital of the USA (and the reason why).

Guess what, folks? More Americans die on a daily basis in D.C. than in Iraq.

Since President Bush told the nation on May 1 that major combat operations in Iraq had ended, 52 U.S. soldiers have been killed in hostilities, according to statistics complied by Reuters on Thursday.

In the same period of time, however, 66 Americans were attacked and killed on Washington, D.C.'s mean streets.....

The jokes and one liners that could come out of this are endless.

Hat tip to Insignificant Thoughts, a misnomer if I've ever seen one.
