This Week: In Memoriam

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

This Week with George Stephanopoulos marks the passing of basketball coach Don Haskins, actress Anita Page and novelist David Foster Wallace as well as 7 soldiers and Marines who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, I also have to note the passing of Green Party founder (and former Nader running mate) Peter Camajo.

According to icasualties, the number of allied deaths attributed to Operation Iraqi Freedom is now 4,471. During this same week, Iraq Body Count lists 129 Iraqi civilian deaths.
