Letter: Would a roundabout be safer?

A partial help to save on the gasoline crunch (high prices) and save a lot of gasoline: We have been at war in Iraq for over five years. I won't even guess the total amount of money we have spent (or wasted). Not only the cost of our military operations but also the cost of rebuilding...
