1000 Dead In Iraq

Washington State Congressman Jim McDermott on the floor of the House today:

It would be nice if we could give each of the dead a minute of silence... But we can't. Because we would be standing here for sixteen and a half hours.

Congressman McDermott proceeded to read the names, ages, and ranks of the dead from Washington State. He asked other members of the House to do the same for the fallen from their states.
