For us long suffering Padres fans, Jerry was always a beacon of light that took us through the manyRead More lows and the less frequent highs. No disrespect to Tony Gwynn but Jerry will always be Mr. Padre.

I missed this news when it first happened. How sad. I've always enjoyed Jerry Coleman's work.

Lisa was such a beautiful person, inside and outside. She fought cancer like a tiger - the same wayRead More she fought for others all of her life. She will be so very missed by so many.

Carolyn was always a very loving person towards me and our dog (Sparky). I was saddened to learn K9Read More Kutz was closing but she called and said I could bring Sparky to her house. I'm sorry I never had the opportunity to do just that. I will keep her family in my prayers and I look forward to seeing her again one day.

The question is about the Iraq War. There were no Taliban in Iraq when we invaded. Our troops areRead More out of Iraq, so I think you have information confused with the Afghan War. Yes the Iraq war was a Republican thing, so I question where you get your news. Our fighting men and women that died, were injured or served in Iraq, did so because of the LIES of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice. Think of how many innocent Iraqi citizens died because of those lies. We liberated no Iraqi communities from Taliban rule, and what we built in Iraq was to replace what we damaged or destroyed during "shock and awe". I suggest you research what lead up to Iraq war. We know 911 is why we went to Afghanistan, but Iraq had nothing to do with 911.

Yes, Iraq was a personal vendetta. The U.N. inspectors at the time said there was no evidence ofRead More WMDs. CIA reports and even an ambassador said publicly, that the administration was lying. I think you are forgetting about Cheney and Scooter Libby trying to do their CYA act. Even Bush wouldn't condone what Cheney and Libby did in outing a CIA agent for political reasons. Afghanistan would have been over long ago if Bush and company hadn't diverted its attention to Iraq.

FYI - “An Associated Press analysis of federal payment records found that the government isRead More still making monthly payments to relatives of Civil War veterans – 148 years after the conflict ended. At the 10 year anniversary of the start of the Iraq war, more than $40 billion a year are going to compensate veterans and survivors from the Spanish-American War from 1898, World War I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the two Iraq campaigns and the Afghanistan conflict. And those costs are rising rapidly.”
