Hard act to follow

My co-blogger's last post kinda took the wind out of my sails, but here goes:
Silly us. We thought the Bushies were going to plant WMD's to justify the war, but no, they're suggesting Saddam planted plants. Silly and sillier.
Which brings up the Baghdad Burning blogger, Riverbend. Her latest posts are amazingly astute, informative, well written. She details the backgrounds of some of the Iraqi "leaders" appointed by Bremer, and has figures about the bidding on a bridge rebuilding in Baghdad--a fair bid might be a million dollars, but Halliburton is charging 50 million!
The breadth and depth of her knowledge does give me some pause, however. I hope she's not a plant.
