A Perfect Day
Today was absolutely amazing in Baghdad: 70 degrees with a slight breeze and bright blue skies. I took the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon cigar in front of Adnan Palace (of course, it wasn't really "perfect" -- I could hear a firefight in the distance). It's days like today that I will surely miss when I return from Iraq.
Unfortunately I expect the next few days to be filled with bad news. We are now at the muslim holiday of Ashura. I'm sure the terrorists will "celebrate" these holy days with mosque bombings and attacks on other religious sites. Pathetic.
