Local Tragedy

I forgot to mention this story, which is also getting major play in Des Moines. Another Iowa soldier killed in Iraq, and then his younger brother commits suicide.

Neither me nor either parent could discuss this story; my younger sister died by suicide in '86. Jesus I hate Bush for sending these guys to fight his personal war.

"Spc. Justin 'Paul' Byers, 19, wrote a letter he was going to read at his older brother's funeral. But he died before he could read the note. Officials say he committed suicide when he was hit and killed by a truck Monday night."
