Hey Matt,I got your link from Jennifer (all things Jen)...Law School's a lot of work, isn't it?? My husband, Matt (www.collateralestoppel.blogspot.com), is in law school here in Chicago, making me a law school widow....and last year I was the "Bride of 1L." (Scream in the background).I think you have a really nice blog with some great writing.Jackie
Thanks Jackie,It's good to hear from you. Come back from time to time!Matt
Just blog browsing. I'm not sure what your point, other to just post what's already well known. Was this a anti-war or pro-war stance, or just a practice session in html?
Well. I wish it was so easy to say that I am "pro" or "anti" war. In an abstract sense, I would prefer that we had not invaded Iraq. Now that we are there, though, I feel like we need to do everything in our power to give the Iraqi people some kind of civilized life. Our responsibility there is bone-deep, and I am concerned that domestic politics are going to lead to a suboptimal outcome in that part of the world, which is something we should all fear.That said, I post the figures because I think it is all too easy to lose sight of the fact that people are being killed daily there. I am not comfortable with the idea of getting comfortable with people killing and dying half a world away.As I told another blog-browser earlier, I would gladly post a running casualty figure for Iraqis too, but I haven't been able to find a reliable counter. I don't feel that any particular subset of lives is more precious than any other subset, but the MSM disagree with me on that point.
