Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

89,000 kids WHO DON'T die each year in Afghanistan

USS Neverdock spotted this article from the AP:
Close to 90,000 children who would have died before age 5 in Afghanistan during Taliban rule will stay alive this year because of advances in medical care in the country, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Sunday.

The under-5 child mortality rate in Afghanistan has declined from an estimated 257 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2001 to about 191 per 1,000 in 2006, the Ministry of Public Health said, relying on a new study by Johns Hopkins University.

Of course the left that protests against the effects of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq doesn't count the effect of the overthrow of the Taliban on women and children. To the left, only dead "civilians" count. Living Afghan children are invisible, as are all children who can't be used as ammunition against George W. Bush.
