Grim Milestone


Via Nicole Belle at Crooks and Liars.  Not with a bang, but a whimper, we've reached a grim milestone: U.S. Marines Cpl Taylor J Baune, 21, Andover, MN, officially became the 2000th soldier to die in Afghanistan.


My heart goes out to his family in recognition of the unfillable hole that his loss will always leave.  And my heartfelt sympathy to all the other 1999...and counting.
