And the war goes on...

US Marine Corps Sgt. Steve Shephard lowers his head during the dedication of the Corporal Jordan C. Pierson Memorial Park in Milford, Connecticut. Pierson, who played in the park as a child, was killed last August in Iraq.
In the meantime Democratic leaders have decided to drop the timeline for withdrawing US forces from Iraq from the war funding bill. Looks like they didn't have the votes in the Senate to pass a bill with timelines. Last time they were able to pass a bill with a couple of Republican votes. One can only hope that Bush got the message.
