Here’s the current front page headline graphic on

Three soldiers in the 101st Airborne were killed today in an attack by Iraqi irregulars. Soldiers from the 101st let the attack on the house were Qusay and Uday were killed. But does that make this a “revenge attack”? Granted, MSNBC has a question mark on the headline, but why is every little event in Iraq blown so far out of proportion and played like it’s all a big soap opera or pulp fiction serial? It’s a war, isn’t it? Don’t soldiers attack each other in wars? Why try to read all sorts of melodrama into every event?

Maybe it’s just me.
