Lot of Room There

Look how much room they left on this monument in Independence, Missouri for future Iraq (War on Terror) casualties:

 They could have put the Iraq names side by side, not only for the sake of symmetry but to dispell the illusion that someday there will be two long columns of names on that thing. I should think they could add the names of the city's Civil War dead in the big, gaping space below. And hope that no new names ever go on that sad piece of stone.
