Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Captain Myers Reporting

I was so rushed yesterday that I neglected to get much posted, but I did want to make a point of directing you to Frank Myer's place for his latest update--a moving account of visiting Iba Sina Hospital in Baghdad.

The suffering of the men who have been killed and wounded during this war, and indeed all wars, should transcend the political or partisan. To a soldier's family, the abstract idea of whether or not a war is "just" usually means much less when they have to endure with that soldier the pain of his wounds. Even in a just war, bullets and bombs still maim and steal the lives of good men, and the pain is no different. If you are the praying sort, pray for these men, and their families.
