War without pain.
Great factoid in Sunday's Washington Post. Turns out that the overwhelming majority of American college students support the imminent war on Iraq. But 44 percent of the student population wouldn't serve if they were drafted. Meantime, we learn that this war is going to cost upwards of $200 billion. But somehow we haven't heard boo about where the money's going to come from -- that is, whose taxes will go up or whose spending will go down. What a deal! A war without sacrifice!
