A photo essay comparing San Francisco to Baghdad. It's a bit slow loading at the moment because of all the sites linking to it, but I think worthwhile nonetheless.

I don't pretend that things are over. There is still substantial risk for our soldiers overseas, but I think this will bring tremendous hope to families here in the US as well as Iraq.
