A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Hollywood expertise: Just watched actress Janeane Garafalo on "Fox News Sunday." She's definitely not the sharpest tool in the shed. Unfortunately, Fox News anchor Tony Snow let Garafalo get away with the claim that the U.S. was responsible for "6,000 to 7,000" civilian casualties during the war on Afghanistan. Even Professor Marc Herold, whose counting method has received some criticism (for double- and triple-counting), pegs the number at 3,000 to 3,400.

According to the Associated Press, the count is closer to 500 to 600.

Garafalo is off by, at best, a factor of two -- at worst a factor of 10.
