DouglasbarberIn my right-hand column, I have a little thingee reporting the current number of U.S. soldiers killed and injured in Iraq to date.  Don’t be fooled by the numbers, people.  The casualty toll is actually higher.  The numbers, for example, don’t take into account people like Specialist Douglas Barber, an Iraqi War veteran who suffered from PTSD. 

Douglas Barber walked on to his front porch Monday, put a gun to his head, and pulled the trigger.  Bradblog tells the story and pays tribute.
