Better late than never.

Blue Gal's got the latest Carnival of the Liberals—in limerick form!

Richard Blair's got a great post about From Iraq and Back, which aired last night and shows ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff's recovery from the traumatic brain injury he got in Iraq last year, and then follows Woodruff talking to soldiers who have suffered the same injury and challenging the head of the VA about whether they're getting the best treatment.

I missed it last night, but watched the whole thing in six pieces on ABC's website: In an Instant: The IED Explosion, Bob Woodruff's 36-Day Coma, Wounded Warriors, Are We Ready for Our Injured?, The Human Cost of War, and Woodruff's Closing Thoughts. It's absolutely staggering, and I highly recommend it, with the warning that it is deeply upsetting, so be prepared. But it's a must-see. Truly.
