An article in The Economist on "The war for the White House" ends with this paragraph. 

    "The other point is that, come the election, it is likely that no one will be paying attention to the war.  The Project for Excellence in Journalism compared network news coverage in early 2007 and 2008, and found that the share of airtime devoted to Iraq fell from 22% of the total to 4%.  If the economy continues to worsen, that share could fall even further.  Although that sounds like good news for Mr. McCain, the bad news is that his economic policies are viewed by many voters as being just as close to Mr. Bush's as his policy on Iraq."

It seems to me that since we are over there, we should be paying attention to what is going on and the news should cover it.  4% is a disgrace!

It does amaze.
