    as well. Kitsap County has a fairly small amount of land compared to some, and about 250,000 people, yet a lot of the county still retains that rural character and culture, from the second-generation (or is it third now) Japanese iris farmers to the guy down the road with a few head of Polled Herefords and a few head of horses, to the woman that sells fresh eggs from her house on Mile Hill. But there's all that federal money and all those federal jobs, be they enlisted or civilian.

    One of the best job training programs here is through the community college, where trade unions apprentices go to school to learn their trades for a couple of years and graduate into guaranteed shipyard jobs. There's got to be huge federal linkage there, and that's just one area. I think 40% of our local employment is civilian military workers on the shipyard and in Bangor.

    Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?
