Things are getting better?

A Shot To the Heart In Baghdad: "At least one student was killed and four were wounded in the attack at the Tigris Mixed Primary School in the well-to-do Mansour neighborhood. In Baghdad, where even far larger death tolls can generate little notice these days, the bombing was a grim and unexplained twist of fate."
"Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi was abducted from his office Thursday evening, a day after he attended the first session of the trial, acting as the lawyer of one Saddam's seven co-defendants."
"The latest scandal surfaced Wednesday when an Australian television network aired video showing members of a U.S. airborne unit purportedly setting fire to the Taliban bodies, followed by other soldiers, identified as specialists in psychological operations, using the event to taunt other enemy fighters and draw them out of nearby hills to retrieve the remains."

"Ford and other U.S. automakers have been hurt by competition from Asia as well as high health care and materials costs and bloated plant capacity. Ford Chairman and CEO Bill Ford said he will complete the restructuring plan in December and announce it in January. He said the plan was painful but essential and would affect salaried workers and hourly workers represented by the United Auto Workers."

"The exhaustive report into the Feb. 14 car bomb that killed Hariri and 20 others was issued to the U.N. Security Council late Thursday and will almost certainly inflame tensions in the region.

The Security Council is likely to use the findings to renew pressure on Syria to ease its continued influence on Lebanon. The council is expected to discuss the report on Tuesday, and may consider sanctions against Syria."

And this one is just soo sad

"The cousin tried frantically to prevent Harris from leaving for San Francisco with her boys, but she failed, relatives said. At 5:30 p.m., police said, Harris took the children to the end of Pier 7 along the Embarcadero, stripped them naked and threw them in the water."

I'm going back to bed and get up on the other side.
