Broken Glass, Not 

As most of us have heard, the surge is working. As with most conflicts, there are levels of success: military, political, social, and business, among others.

A key sign of hope that things are improving is that small business people are opening shops. These shops are not being vandalized nor are they being targeted by those thugs who wish the Iraqi chance at representative government to fail. As the author of Badgers Forward notes, "There at the first corner, I see it. New glass. Someone has put new glass in a shop. Someone only installs new glass when they think it won't get broken. New glass is confidence."
