I'm sorry, but I don't see any reason it would ever be appropriate to ask a soldier in an interview "You ever worry one day your number's gonna come up?" What kind of question is that from a journalist? If you want to get to that issue, could you at least ask it in a less crass way? And then to follow up with whether or not they think their wives are screwing around on them. Sweet merciful crap. What is wrong with people?

My husband said that the appropriate answer to this question is a punch square in the face.

Folks tell me that troops already distrust the press in Iraq. Geez ... could stuff like this be a part of it?
