Crimes and crashes

Joey Brooks. I’ve been reading in the Vail Daily a lot lately about foreign immigrants getting in car crashes, causing crimes, chaos and fights in the Vail Valley, and I’m sick and tired of hearing from the police that as a U.S. citizen I’m being racist.

Don’t Iraqis count?

(Refer to “’80s peace deadlier than today’s war” on

Marlene Luczkow. This is in reference to Don Rogers’ column a few days ago about the number of soldiers who have died in certain wars and it’s been bothering me, so I had to respond.

One of the things he said is that not that many soldiers have died in the Iraq war compared to peace-time soldier deaths.

Well, aside from the fact that this war was based on lies to begin with, which will eventually be known to all, my question to Don is, why doesn’t he even mention the deaths of the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of Iraqi men, women and children who have died? The people we casually refer to as casualties.

Do they not count?
