Media Celebrates 2000 US Deaths in Iraq

Without one story mentioning that something good has come of it.

U.S. Death Toll Hits 2,000 In Iraq

U.S. death toll in Iraq reaches 2,000

Death toll for U.S. troops in Iraq reaches 2,000

U.S. Military Deaths Reach 2,000 in Iraq

U.S. Military Death Toll in Iraq Hits 2,000

In the meantime, Iraqis approved a Constitution. That should be good enough for page 18. It doesn't even make the 'In Other Developments' section in the CBS article. The party will certainly be wild if we ever get to 3k.
