Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Ohio was hit hard this week with stories like this one:

"Rosemary Palmer and her husband, Paul Schroeder, were making plans to attend funerals of Marine reservists killed Monday when a relative saw two servicemen in uniform walking toward the house.

"My sister-in-law saw them and screamed, 'Get down here!' So we knew. They didn't even get a chance to knock," Palmer said.

The couple's son, Lance Cpl. Edward Schroeder, and eight other Marines from Columbus-based Lima Company were killed Wednesday in the deadliest roadside bombing of U.S. troops in Iraq."

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) represents the Brook Park, Ohio district where 20 Marines killed this week in Iraq were from. Kucinich and Brook Park Mayor Mark J. Elliott have announced a memorial service will take place Monday at the I-X Center in Cleveland.
