Ever since I heard that the last U.S. troops had left Iraq, I wanted to write a blog post. But nothing came. Words failed me. I thought Chez might take a stab at it; in fact, I was counting on him to. But he's got other stuff going on so I'm cutting him a break.
I'm ancient enough to remember when the nation held a moment of revernce with only church bells breaking the silence when the Vietnam War ended. But there's been no word of anything like that this time.
Then, this morning, I read Tom's post (December 21: "Out of Iraq") and realized that I don't need to write my post after all. Tom's done it. And done it good.
There's nothing more to say.
