As freedom and democracy march on:
Iraqi govt declares state of emergency
The Iraqi government declared a state of emergency in Baghdad Friday, the prime minister's office said, after clashes broke out in a central district.
It also imposed a 2 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew, sending residents of the capital scrambling to get home before it took effect.
Uh ... a 2 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew?? I'm betting that seriously cuts into that party time when all those jubilant Iraqis and their purple fingers would be out joyously celebrating their liberation.
On the bright side, though, it probably lessens their chances of being executed gangland-style. See? There's always a bright side. You just have to look for it.
