It's okay, it's all right, have a piece of fruit

From WaPo, commenting on the US efforts to reconstruct Iraq in the aftermath of yesterday's horrible bombings:

"Bush aides say there is no cause for panic. A senior administration official involved in Iraq policy said yesterday that the bombings were meant 'to destroy the extraordinary agreement' on a new Iraqi constitution, but that there has been no rise in sectarian violence 'despite the best efforts by the terrorists.'

"Even as the world digested news of yesterday's bombings, the administration continued with its efforts to demonstrate progress in Iraq. The Pentagon released an 'Iraq Fact of the Day' announcing: 'Thousands of children throughout Iraq will soon be able to participate in an Iraqi Boy Scout and Girl Scout program.'"
