Just another day

In Baghdad:

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (Reuters) - Suicide bombers killed nearly 130 people in a crowded market in a Shi'ite district of Baghdad and a mainly Shi'ite town on Thursday, one of the bloodiest days in Iraq in months."

Like most people, I've seen a lot of awful pictures from Iraq. But this one startled me. The raw emotion, and the scope of it -- terror, hopelessness, helplessness, loss -- is so profound.
