    Hardly news, but as other pundits have pointed out is that calm is not news. The media has always benefited from tragedy. That's how Hearst started the Spanish-American War. On the bright side its reduced our tolerance for the death of soldiers. It took nearly 60,000 deaths in Vietnam before the American people forced Nixon to pull us out, or cut and run, as the right-wing likes to think about it. Now, with only 2,500 dead, the American people are already losing patience. More and more Americans are beginning to appreciate the value of our troops, and want them home safe.
