I'm knocking this one out early - Veteran's activities at my kids' school, dontchaknow.

A good variety of stories can be found here.

President Karzai, let us speak of Kabul...

I say again, bless President Karzai's bald head. I feel flat-out sick about Rumsfeld's departure. Abrasive, maybe. Stubborn, undoubtedly. But brilliant. And he respects and cares more about the troops on the ground than his potential smooth replacement ever will.

Isn't it heartwarming to read how downcast Hamas and al Qaeda in Iraq feel in response to this turn of events?

Stupid politicians....

Herat's Jami Masjid mosque is extraordinarily beautiful.

The opportunity for tourism is obviously being overlooked by the folks who are so dead set on killing one another.

Not only is Herat a possible tourist bonanza, it is perfectly located to be a transportation and business center, government center and cutural/eductional center. Some day only Kabul will be richer and more important to Afghanistan...
