I wonder if anyone is tracking how much it costs for every cotton-pickin' congressman to fly over to Iraq only to come home and say the same thing all the others have said.

After a few hours in Baghdad, Mosul and Kuwait City, Rogers said Tuesday, he saw signs of progress toward restoring basic services, self-government and security to the people of Iraq.

"A lot more progress has been made over there than I expected," Rogers said. "The commanding generals are really impressive people, not just as military leaders, but as leaders period."

And it is very telling to me whenever folks meet soldiers for the first time and can't contain their surprise at what incredibly decent and talented human beings they are.

But, if all you know about soldiers is what you see on TV....well...
