Army upset by sign tallying death count

Al.com (via Fark):

Scott Cameron never imagined his modest memorial to American troops in Iraq would transform a quiet street here into the latest front of the nation’s tense debate about the war in Iraq.

His sign tallying the war’s dead and wounded rests feet from the local Army recruiting office, and Cameron’s refusal to take it down despite Army requests has drawn national attention. The fuss is giving the Vietnam veteran a chance to air a view he wishes he’d expressed long ago.

I do believe that this makes this man a hero, in a country where the powers-that-be do everything they can to hide the real costs of war.
