Iraq Bombing

IRAQ BOMBING….The news from Iraq seemed promising yesterday, but today we’re back to bad news: 143 are dead in suicide bombings at Shiite shrines in Baghdad and Karbala, and it might have been worse except that a third plot in Basra was preempted.

There really is some hopeful news coming out of Iraq these days, but there’s also plenty of bad news. Folks on both sides should keep some perspective.
