Help wanted  

This is disturbing and reassuring at the same time: while seeking a job with the government over at USAJobs.com, I noticed a large number of postings from the VA for readjustment counselling specialists and therapists. On the one hand, it's a frightening reminder that although combat deaths among American troops in Iraq have been relatively low (thanks to Kevlar), relatively more troops are coming with life-altering injuries. On the other hand, it's nice to know the VA is finally starting to look after the peculiar needs of a whole new segment of American society -- the Iraq War vets.

More about Kevlar and its inventor.
