How much is a 'score'?
Female Suicide Bombers Kill Scores in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Two women strapped with explosives blew themselves up at Baghdad's police academy on Tuesday, killing 27 people and wounding 32, the U.S. military said.
The women blew themselves up in a classroom filled with students, the statement from Task Force Baghdad said. No U.S. forces were killed or wounded in the attack, it said.
Absolutely hideous. But that would be a "one score and seven," not "scores" killed. Remember that little Lincoln speech?
