And the last quick note for today - also via Normblog - I issue fair warning to those who dare read this Naomi Klein piece. BRAVO, I say. For lo, she brings good tidings:
Washington's hold on Baghdad is growing weaker by the day, while the pro-democracy forces inside the country grow stronger. Genuine democracy could come to Iraq, not because Bush's war was right, but because it has been proven so desperately wrong.

Interestingly, the editors were evidently a little off form in this latest issue as they neglected to delete before going to press a little post script note from the author: "Sorry for sending this in dull pencil on paper. Hope you can read it. But I'm not allowed anything sharp in this place. - Naomi"
