Lots to think about in the paper today

1) Zippy the Pinhead on Iraq.

2) Carolyn Hax on the ever-popular relationship question: "My boyfriend and I have been living together for two years and the sizzle is pretty much gone. I don't expect fireworks all the time, and it's nice to have the kind of comfort that we have with each other; but we're almost just like roommates now. When I try to talk about our relationship with him, he gets defensive. I have tried to make it clear that I am not criticizing. I love him, but he generally just annoys me these days. I'm not sure what to do, other than risk killing a basically good relationship or settling for comfort and giving up on being really happy."
Her response is here. Please discuss.

3) And for comic relief, a very bad pun from Pearls Before Swine.

I'm off to get bagels for my team, and then get started on my Very Long Day. At least I got plenty of sleep last night, and the iron pills and the extra-added shadowdaddy seem to be helping my mood. I also got a web cam yesterday, so with luck I'll get it set up sometime during the quiet hours between 7 and 10 PM and you all can enjoy the view from my office on the days when I have one. (Let's just ignore the fact my view while sitting in this room is generally entirely the computer monitor - I want you to imagine the possibilities of the location, and not the reality.)
