This Week with George Stephanopoulos notes the passings of noted writer Horton Foote, editor James Bellows and "Winston Man"/anti-smoking crusader Alan Landers.

In addition, the Pentagon has released the names of four service members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The total number of allied service members killed in Iraq now totals 4,256, in Afghanistan, 1,096. During this week, Iraq Body Count lists 55 Iraqi civilians killed. Sadly, that number does not include the 28 Iraqis killed and 60 wounded by a suicide bomber this morning.
