Value of a Person

The WashPost has an occasional column called the Fine Print and in yesterday's, we learn that Iraqi people and cars have the same value. A commander may pay $2,500 for compensation for a dead Iraqi or a dead car (both killed by US troops). Their economy is not as high as ours, but that's still a pittance for a person.

Spirit frequently comes in the evening to sit between my legs in the recliner, but last night, she burrowed between the nightgown and robe and curled up in the same place -- just with cover over her.
