      I still think humanity as a whole becomes less than it could be every time we start killing each other.  I didn't cry any tears for Udai and Qusay.  I didn't feel sorrow when Timothy McVeigh was executed.  But I didn't jump up and clap my hands either.  Death at the hands of others is nothing to celebrate.  We have the ability to grieve for the soldiers and the contracters... it doesn't have to be one or the other.
