11 soldiers died today and it barely registered. I'm afraid of the numbing effect this war is having. We're getting used to the mounting casualities. It's exhausting being outraged/frustrated/horrified all of the time. I think one by one we're tuning out. I can feel it happening to me.

I can't believe that Bush's horrible "Mission Accomplishment" speech was a year ago. In some ways these last three plus years have been interminable. And yet when you've spent them in a sort of sustained state of disbelief, it feels as though time isn't passing at all. I'm still stuck in 2000 when everything went wrong.
