The number of dead


Bobby Blair, a Vietnam veteran from Holliston, says he recently spoke about the war in Iraq to a church youth group.

"None of them personally know of anyone who's in Iraq," he said. "They didn't realize how serious it was. I said, `Do you think we're watching a video game?' And some of them said it was almost that."

Blair was quoted in an Associated Press story that looked at Americans' attitude towards the rising toll of deaths in Iraq.
