Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

A Thousand Lives

I heard the news today, oh boy. A thousand US troops have now died in the "liberation" of Iraq since the fighting began in March of 2003. Dick Cheney threatened the US with another terrorist attack if George W. Bush loses the November election. And Kerry is being branded a flip-flopper for voting against Bush's $87 billion request for the funding of the continuation of the Iraq War.
Forgive me for interceding, and for injecting my own opinion, but didn't George Bush try to convince us that the war would cost something on the order of $20 billion back when he was talking all of us into it? Why isn't it Bush who is being accused of the flip-flop?
