Washington Man Gets Death Threats For War Dead Billboard

Money quote: "They hate us for our freedoms still, I see."

Nearly five years after putting up a controversial billboard that keeps a running tally of U.S. soldier deaths in Iraq, the owner says it's staying up despite vandalism and threats.

Thousands of cars pass by with some drivers waving and honking in support. But Queisser says others have thrown rocks at his home and vandals have torn the sign apart multiple times. There have also been letters calling Queisser a terrorist, and even one that threatened him with beheading.

I bet more than 28% of Bellingham, Washington residents know exactly how many soldiers have died in McBush's war.

Oh, 3992, by the way.
