Nice spin job

So the good news from Iraq is: U.S. forces welcome least deadly month of Iraq push :
But the numbers over the years:
For the record, July casualties in Iraq since the war began:
2003 - 48
2004 - 54
2005 - 54
2006 - 43
2007 - 78

Death's go down every July because it's too hot to go outside.
Added: The July casualties were revised up to 81.

Oh, P! Numbers. Too thinky! Too logic-filled!

Spin trumps silly old numbers every time....

Can't help it. I'm a logic addict, and I go into withdrawl if I don't get a regular fix of numbers.
