He Is Risen!

The First Mate and I wish all CQ readers a blessed and happy Easter. We hope that you all have the opportunity to spend it with friends and/or family, and that the blessings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, shower down upon you all. For those CQ readers who do not belong to the Christian faith, we hope that this day brings fellowship and rest.
Today, we are blessed to have the Admiral Emeritus and his wife with us, who are helping the FM to recover this week as I finish my last week at the present day job. All of us will spend time with my son’s in-laws, a wonderful family that has opened their arms to us every day we have known them, but especially on holidays, as our families are in California. We’re going to take it easy and make sure that the FM doesn’t overdo it, but we want to take advantage of the almost-miraculous recovery she has had since the kidney transplant nine days ago.
If you think about during your prayers today, offer some for the donor and his generous family. They are my greatest blessing this Easter.

    Happy Easter to all….

  7. Sadr Attempts to Reemerge

    I think it’s pretty evident that, with Sadr essentially being on the sidelines since the surge began, he’s looking to reassert his authority here. A few weeks ago, we had reports that Mahdi Army was fracturing, with a lack of centralized le…
