Serious news to ruin your day

Salon has posted an encyclopedic account of Iraqi prisoner abuse that it's calling "The Abu Ghraib Files," which includes all 279 photos, 19 videos, and nine separate essays and articles. Much too much to digest all at once, but finally it's all out there and available to review.

I spent part of yesterday reading some of these documents drafted by optimistic Iraqi exiles and State Department officials in the run-up to the war. They provide a different kind of heartbreak.

So, happy Wednesday.
