This is the start of our Memorial Day tribute.

Once every few weeks, I stop and list the recent war dead in Bush's illegal war. These people are all victims of murder and Bush is an accessory. At least read their names aloud once, then go to Books For Soldiers and lend a hand for the living.

The names are after the flip.
