The Banality of the Season From the hard-working man, Nero Dubya Bush, currently giving tours in Crawford, Texas: As families and friends gather to enjoy this Easter season, we celebrate God's gift of freedom and His love that conquers death. For those who observe Easter, our faith brings confidence that good will overcome evil and that joy is everlasting. Celebrating God's conquers death... Let's see how his freedom and love are working thanks to the Preznit's efforts: FALLUJAH, Iraq (AP) The people of Fallujah carried their dead to the city's soccer stadium and buried them under the field on Friday, unable to get to cemeteries because of a U.S. siege of the city. As the struggle for Fallujah entered a fifth day, hundreds of women, children and the elderly streamed out of the city. Marines ordered Iraqi men of ''military age'' to stay behind, sometimes turning back entire families if they refused to be separated. ''A lot of the women were crying,'' said Lance Cpl. Robert Harriot, 22, of Eldred, N.Y. ''There was one car with two women and a man. I told them that he couldn't leave. They tried to plead with me. But I told them no, so they turned around.'' The fighting has killed more than 280 Iraqis and four Marines, and has seen heavy battles that have damaged mosques and destroyed buildings angering even pro-U.S. politicians and turning the city of 200,000 into a symbol of resistance for some Iraqis. If I thought the man was reflective in the least, I'd think this should be the worst Easter ever. But, of course, he isn't.
