We long ago reached the point of diminishing returns in Iraq. The only legitimate question is when, not whether; we should withdraw our troops from Iraq. One school of thought is that we cannot exit Iraq unless we win, and that any talk of an immediate withdrawal would simply embolden our enemies there. Both of these reasons are wrong. We need to set a deadline for withdrawal, and we need to set it immediately. The deadline itself should allow for an orderly withdrawal of troops, but should not be set more than 3 months away.
Weekdays, Rhonda Marshall's husband, John, works two different jobs, from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. He comes home for a few hours, then leaves for a third job at midnight. He gets home about 4 a.m, sleeps an hour, then starts all over again.
He's off most weekends, but only if there are no extracurricular school activities.
Along with his full-time day job as a high school custodian in Spring Valley, Ill., he works four hours a night at a nearby elementary school and a part-time third shift job in floor care.
That's how it's been for most of the Marshalls' marriage.
