Gotta love "journalism"
The end of this article, titled Marine survives 9 bombs, caught my eye: "'We came here and accomplished our mission,' Stevens says. The triangle of death has seen attacks drop sharply. Local security forces have more confidence. Crowds are friendlier.
'Ow!' the Marine standing next to Stevens shouts. The man grabs a wrist slapped numb by a stinging chunk of dirt from the cratering blast a quarter-mile-plus away.
'I told you not to be around me,' Stevens says, going after the hunched-over Marine. 'How many days we got left?'"

What is this, creative writing?
