Yeah, I saw some footage of the national museum. It was basically empty. There are going to be a lot of priceless ancient artifacts being used as doorstops in the New Iraq.

Of course, there is no small irony in the fact that the Hammurabi tablets may have been stolen...

"If any one steal the property of a temple or of the court, he shall be put to death, and also the one who receives the stolen thing from him shall be put to death. "

A lady who has a secure seat is never prettier than when in the saddle, and she who cannot make her conquest there, may despair of the power of her charms elsewhere. - THE MANNERS THAT WIN, 1880
