WEEP FOR the war's hidden

WEEP FOR the war's hidden victims ...

Normally healthy and vigorous, Deborah Dashow Ruth of Kensington has developed a case of shingles, her ulcer is acting up, and her head has been throbbing since the United States invaded Iraq a week ago.

She ascribes her current health problems to the intense emotions the war has provoked. "Just as Iraq was invaded by the viral Republican administration, I have been invaded by these viral Republican conditions," she said.

Poor Ruth, all shingled up and suffering a fatal case of head-throb. Imagine how much worse her symptoms might be if she was actually sick.
