Just Give It Up, Already
Wedding film challenges U.S. on air strike

Good morning. What is so wrong about saying, "Look, we're sorry we bombed your wedding, but apparently we were working off bad information, as usual, and don't understand your culture anyway and really don't want to, even though we've been there over a year.

Waiting for my camera to be delivered and my lawnmower to be returned. Don't know what on earth I did about things like this when I was gainfully employed and not (ahem) resting. I think I had to take days from work, that's what.

On with the day.
