The Good News

I was honestly sitting here thinking "hmm... didn't notice all that much news about violence in Iraq this weekend. Maybe things were a bit calm." I have CNN on, usually with volume off/captioning on, basically all the time when I'm sitting at the computer. But, it seems, the good news in Iraq is being relegated to deep inside the Washington Post.

BAGHDAD, April 2 -- At least 50 people were killed Sunday in Iraq in a catalogue of violence that included a mortar attack, military firefights, roadside bombings and other explosions.

In addition, the U.S. military reported the deaths of six soldiers and airmen, including two who were killed when their helicopter apparently was shot down during a combat air patrol southwest of Baghdad on Saturday
