When the deaths are countless…

Why bother to count?

MSNBC, at least, seems to have given up: one of its stories late yesterday was tagged “Scores killed in Baghdad blasts.”

But “scores” isn’t quite right: surely we should standardize on a measure that celebrates the presidential cause of those scores—say, a Bushel. One Bushel could equal one bombsworth, although we’d all have to agree on what constitutes a standardized explosion in downtown Baghdad…

Still, you can see where I’m going with this. And just think: no more counting those pesky, individually innocent Iraqis.

Anyway, yesterday we apparently lost two Bushels.

Are we proud yet?
