The talk around the place today is, of course, everyone's reaction to Saddam's execution. Nobody is really celebratory about it. Most recognize it as a significant event in our lives, but I'm not sure we've all had time to really think about what it means. Like many things that happen here, I'm sure their significance will be much clearer after several more years of history show the impact of them.
I'll be taking the usual half-day off for New Year's Eve, and celebrating a little bit with friends (without the usual champagne, of course). That'll be good for tomorrow. Tonight, I'll be able to watch the Meineke Car Care Bowl live. Go Navy!
