Signs of progress

Heard from a chorus of conservative pundits… “It’s a sign of progress in Iraq that Iraqi reporter Muntader al-Zaidi felt safe enough to throw a shoe at President Bush”. Or at least it will be if he survives the reported beatings and torture he is enduring.

Note to movie and TV writers: this would be an appropriate use of the word quantum, as in, “This is a sign of a quantum of progress in Iraq.”
