You probably won't see this in the Strib or WaPo.

Iraqpundit, he say:
I know those who are wedded to the idea of a failed Iraq are calling me a deluded idiot and worse. But things are improving slowly. My relatives in Baghdad say there's no comparison; things are much better than they were six months ago. They can visit friends in different areas and walk about the neighbourhood in the evening.

Frankly, I don't understand why so many mock us for wanting a future for Iraq. Is your hatred for George Bush so great that you prefer to see millions of civilians suffer just to prove him wrong?

It really comes down to this: you are determined to see Iraq become a permanent hellhole because you hate Bush. And we are determined to see Iraq become a success, because we want to live.

this post has no music either

Way too tired after staying up way too late last night and getting slammed today at work - we get AP checks tomorrow, and there's an ungodly amount of paperwork to be done before those can be run, much less handed/sent off to vendors & subcontractors. So I'm going to bed after I post this, solidly ballasted by a couple slices of Mom's homemade meatloaf and a baked potato. Yum.

EVE is on hiatus for me - membership expired today and I can't afford to re-up until payday.

Something I'm going to have to look into once I have money again are pupuserias, which sell a sort of turnover/tortilla hybrid called a pupusa. Sounds like it beats the hell out of conventional Tex-Mex cuisine a la Taco Bell. Anyway, there's a couple of those joints close to work, and they've got to be better than the furshlugginer lamb kabobs & gyros at the Food Corner.

There's no music because Windows Media Player is acting weird. Again. I'm beginning to wonder if the secondary USB port on Cowzilla is going bad, since I'm having intermittent read/write problems with the external hard drive. :(
