In what I thought was a poignant reminder - the count of American casualties in Iraq on the day John Kerry accepted the Democratic Nomination was 911.
Another soldier died that day. Spc. Joseph F. Herndon, II, 21, of Derby, Kan., died July 29, in Hawijah, Iraq, when he was shot while on guard duty. So at midnight, shortly after Kerry accepted the nomination, the counter went up to 912.
