Worse and Worse Every Day

US Troops Seize Award-Winning Iraqi Journalist

American troops in Baghdad yesterday blasted their way into the home of an Iraqi journalist working for the Guardian and Channel 4, firing bullets into the bedroom where he was sleeping with his wife and children.

I had several rather dismaying conversations over the holidays, filled with morbid jokes about the FBI knocking on one's door subsequent to even slightly ill-advised comments. Found myself thinking, several times, "it is hard to believe I'm in America, and having this conversation." Sigh.
