OFF TO SLEEP: Not much else is likely to happen before it gets dark again in Iraq. The war should be short, but not so short that I can remain awake throughout. Plus, I have this job where they insist that I do at least some work. So, more blogging in eight hours or so. If you’re dying for late-night blogging, or are in a different time zone, Stephen has a list of First Strike Bloggers who will be blogging at least some part of the night.
