Remember our military dead and get 20% off a La-Z-Boy recliner!

While you’re enjoying wienies and potato salad at a Memorial Day barbecue, please take a moment to check out this interactive, AP-produced list of American soldiers killed in Iraq. It’s a comprehensive list beginning with Marine Major Jay Aubin, the first serviceman killed in March 2003, and ending with Army Specialist David McCormick, killed at the end of March of this year.

Take a moment to consider the extraordinary cost of human life wasted here. I mean, seriously, Bush gave up playing golf over it, it has to be a kind of a big deal.
