The natives are getting restless

Since I returned from the border, it has actually been pretty quiet inside the Green Zone. I think the bad guys are saving up their mortars until closer to the election.

Then about 20 minutes ago we got 2 big booms that shook the palace pretty well- sounded like mortars. But they weren't close enough to blow out any windows, and everyone here is OK.
