A happy day for our household

It is a happy day in our household. All our teams won this week: the Stars won, the Mavericks won, the Cowboys won, and - most importantly - Fort Hood won!

Fayrouz and I are so proud of the Fort Hood soldiers who captured Saddam. I was at Fort Hood a few weeks ago photographing one of the units training to go to Iraq. It means more to see these professionals bringing such honor to their units, families, our state and nation. Huah!

My wife, who is an Iraqi-Australian, keeps singing "It's the most wonderful day of the year" to the popular seasonal song with similar lyrics. I was on the Berlin Wall the night it officially fell and experienced freedom firsthand. Today means the same to her. She has been calling her family around the world wishing them a happy "Saddam Captured Day."

Enough for now,
