Terra' Attacks - 3192 Freedom Fighters - 0

Iraq, with 866, had the most terror attacks against civilians and other noncombatants, according to the new database. In April, Iraq was said to have had 201 attacks. The new numbers included attacks on Iraqis by Iraqis, a category previously excluded because it wasn't considered international terrorism.

M-Diddy is like, totally HARD now.

Asked about the electronic monitoring device she must wear on her ankle — she has complained repeatedly that it irritates her skin — Stewart says she knows how to remove it. "I watched them put it on. You can figure out how to get it off," she is quoted as saying. "It's on the Internet. I looked it up." Her publicist's eyes "widened with alarm" when Stewart made the remark. The article didn't say whether Stewart claimed ever to have taken off the device.

The Palm Beach Post have an interactive map that documents the casualties as of Wednesday, June 29. I clicked on the Edinburg, TX dot and got these results:

Name: Dustin M. Sekula Age: 18 Gender: Male Rank: Pfc. Branch: Marines Status: Active duty Date killed: April 1, 2004 Incident type: Action Operation: Iraqi Freedom Name: Mark Anthony Zapata Age: 27 Gender: Male Rank: Spc. Branch: Army Status: Active duty Date killed: August 15, 2004 Incident type: Action Operation: Iraqi Freedom

I went to school with Pfc. Sekula's older brother, and I graduated with Spc. Zapata from ENHS. Sekula was the first casualty from Hidalgo County. Oy.
