Prince Harry to Be Sent to Iraq
Hey, didn't the Brits just say they were going to pull out of Iraq this summer?

Prince Harry to Be Sent to Iraq
LONDON, Feb. 22--Prince Harry is going to war.

The younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana will be deployed to Iraq in the coming months as the first Royal Family soldier to serve in a war zone in 25 years. Now known officially as Cornet Wales, a rank equivalent to 2nd lieutenant, the ruby-cheeked prince will serve in Iraq for six months commanding a squadron of 12 men in four Scimitar armored reconnaissance vehicles.
So when are Jenna and Not Jenna going?

Thank God Anna Nicole Smith might get buried soon.

But WTF is going on with the astronaut love triangle? My theory is that NASA assassinated Smith to get it out of the headlines.

Luckily nothing new from the Iraq front -- unless you're one of the 3150 "coalition" now dead (they've apparently stopped counting Iraqis*).

Just 2 days ago heard someone saying "over 3000 have been killed." Read the freeking news buddy and get yourself up to date. I realize Oscar buzz will shortly be getting in the way, plus speculation about what's the latest on Idol and Lost.


UPDATE: And whose fault is it?
Iraqi toll lowballed by tens of thousands

The number of Iraqis killed, however, is much harder to pin down, and that uncertainty is perhaps reflected in Americans’ tendency to lowball the Iraqi death toll by tens of thousands.

Iraqi civilian deaths are estimated at more than 54,000 and could be much higher; some unofficial estimates range into the hundreds of thousands. The U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq reports more than 34,000 deaths in 2006 alone.

Among those polled for the AP survey, however, the median estimate of Iraqi deaths was 9,890[ed. !!!!]. The median is the point at which half the estimates were higher and half lower.
Yes, people. We don't want to know anything except news about Anna Nicole and the Holloway girl (whatever happened to that one?)
