Open Thread - Look The Other Way Edition

by Steve

While the wingers tell us that things are going well in Iraq, especially outside of Baghdad, the Post reports Monday that 69 have died across the country in just the last day or so.

Even worse, note how cavalierly the story buries the news that 7, count 'em, seven more US soldiers were killed yesterday and today. Damn it, the media doesn't even think such news merits Page One, above-the-fold attention anymore. The White House has successfully cheapened such losses and made them commonplace.

OK, it's your turn.
