Being away means I'm slower in learning about what's happened. Usually, it's stuff that doesn't matter too much. This time, I've learned that four more Canadian soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan. It seems extra weird that just yesterday I overheard a man singing that old song by Country Joe. The one that says, "One, two, three, four -- what're we fighting for?" Only when the 'Vietnam' line rolled past, I thought I heard "next stop, Afghanistan."
Hmm. Maybe that wasn't a mis-hearing at all.
