Catching Up

The past few weeks have been hectic. A lot has happened in the world while I've been immersed in work. U.S. troops are leaving Iraq and turning control over the newly established Iraq military.At the same time a troop surge continues in Afghanistan with a once-and-for-all plan in place to destroy the Taliban--something that should have been done years ago instead of putting U.S. troops in Iraq in the first place. Of course going after the Taliban in the mountanious wilderness may inevitably resemble more of a futile game of Whack-a-Mole instead of a successful military engagement.

The world has seen the passing of several entertainment icons over the past week. I won't eulogize them here as so many others are doing. There is nothing that I can say that hasn't already been said. Life goes on and then death. It is what it is.
