Come Together

Wednesday afternoon, a few dozen people gathered at a corner of Ventura High to protest the Iraq occupation and to mark the fifth anniverary of this event.  Some numbers include nearly 4,000 Americans dead – well over 30,000 injured – tens of thousands of Iraqis dead, estimates of between 1.5 and 3 trillion dollars spent on this effort extending into the next decade… and oil at $105 a barrel.  Wow, it’s truly staggering.  So is this:   Historic Oil Prices:  nominal/adjusted for inflation (2007) – March 19,2008 = $104.48 per barrel
