A Little Less Holiday Cheer

There won't be much joy over the holidays for the family and friends of five more troops killed in Iraq today.

I'm sure the Bush family will have a relaxing holiday.

This month, 76 American troops have died in Iraq, the same number that were killed in April. With nine days remaining in December, the monthly total of U.S. deaths could meet or exceed the death toll of 105 in October.

With nine days left in the year, that seems quite likely.
