Today in history...

So, I begin my daily ritual of dutifully trafficking of news sites, trying to find news of any actual substance. As usual, thank God, Allah, Buddha, Shiva, Elvis et al...for the BBC. Today marks the day for "Going Out of Business" sale for the US in Iraq. As someone who feels as though they've left more than time there, to see it share news time on the likes of CNN and Fox(opposite sides of the same, Harvey Dent like coin) with the Golden Globe nominations gives me a special sense of accomplishment. We left a country in far worse shape than we received it. And today, as we depart, it isn't even a leading story. As a vet of this conflict, is it wrong to feel...apathetic?
