From Suffolk Peace Network:

As we are rapidly approaching the 4,000th American casualty in IRAQ , the Suffolk Peace Network is making plans for a massive demonstration in reaction to that dreadful event.

As of February 25 the number has reached 3,973

On the first SATURDAY following the day that the 4,000th American casualty is reached we will stand as a presence of peace on the sidewalk on Rte 25 in front of the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. We will be there from 2:00-4:30 PM.

4,000 troops, 1 million Iraqis DEAD—on front, ENOUGH—on back.
