In my article here on Wednesday that criticized the John Kass column in the Chicago Tribune, I quoted the number of Iraq War death for U.S. military. However, the number I used was for wounded personnel. (Happily, I at least included a link, so people could click on it and have seen what the number actually referred to.)
The correct number of deaths is 4,486. I've subsequently made the change. I've also added the number of civilian deaths (and link...), which is estimated at 126,51.
All in the sake of trying to be accurate.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
