Winter Storms Wallop Midwest, East


That's the big hed on CNN, so ignore this story:

Two CNN employees were killed, and a third was lightly wounded Tuesday afternoon when the cars they were traveling in came under fire.
...
Translator and producer Duraid Isa Mohammed, 27, and driver Yasser Khatab, 25, died from multiple gunshot wounds. Cameraman Scott McWhinnie, traveling in another vehicle, was grazed in the head by a bullet.

The CNN vehicles were headed north toward Baghdad when a rust-colored Opel approached from behind. A single gunman with an AK-47, standing through the sunroof, opened fire on one of the vehicles.

That lead CNN vehicle, hit at least five times, managed to escape from the gunman as the CNN security adviser returned fire.

I guess death is so common-place in Iraq these days that winter weather, which I thought was common-place during winter, trumps it even when it's your own employees. In CNN's defense, the people killed were clearly darkies and not American. Oh wait, that won't wash because the deaths of 3 US soldiers also barely made a blip*. Our media hard at work...

What I want to know is: what's President Bush going to do about this winter weather crisis?

*[Update: The total bloodshed for today is now 6 US soldiers, 4 Iraqi policemen, 2 CNN employees, and 1 Iraqi civilian.]
