Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, R-San Diego, is an Iraq vet who believes the public is paying less attention to "the fact that we still have service members out there every single day who are dying." As for "the numbers story," he said, "it has a tendency to diminish the significance of each one of the lives and the families and the friends."
Former Democratic Assemblyman and long-time Army Reserve Officer Tom Umberg sent me this note from Afghanistan: "I don't know what number Cpl. Nicholas D. Paradarodriguez was when he was killed here on Sunday. I do know that for his family, his friends and those serving with him here in Afghanistan, he will be a constant and searing reminder of the sacrifice being made by a very few for the benefit of the millions of Americans who cannot name a person serving in uniform or feel any pinch on their pocketbook as a result of this war."
