An Open Letter
New Years Day, 2005

"Stopping by the Prosaic on an Autumn Day": New York Times op-ed by Francis X. Cline, on poet laureate Ted Kooser (11/12/04): "...[Kooser] writes long-term of mankind, political and not, as one of many skeletons down at your local bone museum....

As of October 28, the most thorough independent study conducted to date reported a conservative estimate of 100,000 Iraqi civilians dead, directly attributable to the U.S.-led invasion. This preceded the November Fallujah initiative. Still missing are reliable numbers for U.S. soldiers, dead and wounded, and helpers. See the October story
