The "good news", as the 2006 comes to an end, was:
... according to a news item by Steven Herst of Associated Press on yahoo news, the hanging of Saddam Hussein did not have any impact on daily lives of people in Baghdad:
- "..There was no sign of a feared Sunni uprising in retaliation for the execution, and the bloodshed from civil warfare on Saturday was not far off the daily average — 92 from bombings and death squads."
...the "daily average" remains stable - and, so apparently, it seems that we are doing well in this world
With this note, let's welcome 2007 in our lives... with the hope that we may be able to change the base point of this "daily average" in some small ways.
Have a great and meaningful year!!!
