'War' doesn't help the ego by STEVEN YOUNKINS The basement of an abandoned farmhouse offers two men a momentary glimmer of safety. "This isn't a war any more than it is a war between men and maggots," one says while slaughter ensues above their heads. "This is an extermination. " Director Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" is perhaps the hardest kick in the stomach that the human superiority complex might ever get. Set in present-day New England and starring Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning, this sure ain't your grandmother's "War of the Worlds.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Wondering exactly how many U.S. troops have died in Iraq? What the war is costing the United States or West Virginia? How many Iraqis have died since the war began two years ago? Answers to those questions can be found on an electronic sign posted in a window of the former YMCA building at 224 W.

Installed during an event Saturday that drew a crowd of more than 150 people, the sign will remain in place indefinitely, said Hilary Lo, a member of a group of local residents who decided to erect the sign.

It is sobering to think that children who are in middle school have never known an America that wasn't at war. While not of the scale of world wars, we have still faced the daily reminder that we have men and women in harm's way, as reports of explosions, firefights and death reach our ears. As the years have marched on, it is perhaps too easy to slip into the mentality that this is the way it has always been and always will be. We pray that it is not. We long for an America at peace, which is, or should be, our normal condition.

Man, we needed this. Many thought finding Salt Lake City teen Elizabeth Smart alive and well was about as good as it gets in the good-news department. Jesse Lynch matches the feeling. While millions around the country celebrated the stunning news that Smart was found and quickly reunited with her family, the word of Pfc. Jessica Lynch being rescued could not have come at a better time. The Smart story turned our attention from the pending conflict in Iraq.
