I gotta hand it to those nutty insurgents: The day before the big vote on the new, temporary Iraqi constitution (temporary because I plan to make paper airplanes out of it the moment I return to power) they knocked out a major power transmission line leading to Baghdad and plunged the whole city into darkness! It's so bad, in fact, that I'm being forced to post this entry by candlelight!

The outage won't interfere with the voting directly since they are using paper ballots. It does, however, send a major message about the sad state of affairs in the country.
