i watched the war a little bit this morning. its really surreal to turn on the tv and see matt lauer forced to be a "journalist" in a serious situation. nbc had one of their reporters speeding on a vehicle with troops through the iraqi desert, live and via satelite! so very very surreal and yet very real and disturbing. at one point, they were passing a mass of coalition vehicles that appeared to be broken down. while part of me wants to watch and know everything thats going on, i had to turn it off.
