A Day in the Life

If you think the media has fallen down covering the "good news" from Iraq you need to read a great post over at DailyKos by dancewater which imagines what a day's worth of Iraqi violence would look like if it had occured in California.

I'll let dancewater explain:

Below is a list of security incidents from one day (July 11, 2006) in Iraq. Iraq is slightly bigger than California, and Iraq has a slightly smaller population, but they are a close match. Now, join with me on an imaginary situation, where the Chinese army invaded California to rid the country of California of an evil Governor, Mr. Schwarzenegger.

I realize the setup sounds humorous. Believe me it's not.

Read the whole post here.

Amazing what a little perspective can accomplish isn't it?
