creditToday's Daily News blows out the front page to list the names of the 2,000 U.S. military dead in Iraq. Here's the main story; the package is rich in online extras.

The L.A. Times package includes a large PDF graphic that runs on page A9 and shows the states where the killed troops lived. There's also a link to Newsday's searchable database of Iraq casualties.
