I'm not conflicted about the war. I think it's a terrible idea. What little good may come of it will be drastically outweighed by the bad.
I am conflicted, though, about what to wish for. Normally, I'd always wish for a war to be short and successful. But I fear that a short, successful war would just lead us into even more adventurism. On the other hand, anything else would mean more people dead, more property destroyed, more misery for all concerned. I can't wish for that. So, I'm conflicted.
My cold is basically all better. Jackie and I went to the Fitness Center today, our first visit since I came down with the cold. Even though we didn't lift for several days, I did get a good bit of exercise, having done a lot of walking on both Saturday and Sunday.
