President gives up golf in solidarity with U.S. dead in Iraq War

I'm tempted to let this headline to stand for itself-- but I can't. Supposedly Bush gave up golf in 2003 (but we're just now hearing about it) after being notified, while on the golf course, that a truck bomb had killed 22 soldiers.

And this is supposed to show his compassion and understanding of the depth of suffering that U.S. military and their families have experienced? And what will he give up for the rest of us, who are getting poorer and poorer in this three trillion dollar war? Chocolate bars?
