    Wow...just a reminder of the very real dangers that go along with being a journalist. :(

    Like many others, I'll be praying for their recovery.

    Someone oughta investigate Elizabeth Vargas and see if she had anything to do with it... ;)

    Seriously, though, hope they all come out of this OK. And don't forget about all of the servicemen and women who are there ALL the time... they face danger every day, not just when they visit for a few days from the US.

    More specifically, it's the danger of being a journalist in a country with guerilla fighting where both civilians and soldiers are targets. I doubt there have been many cases of journalists driving down the street in London/New York/Chicago/etc. and having their car hit by an IED.

    Sad to hear, hope both make it through.

    Though I am tired of the coverage of their injuries. Many more are injured and killed, both civilian and military - and they only get a mention by numbers of wounded and killed in attacks that day.

    Yeah, I thought the GMA coverage this morning was lame. I turned it off it was so annoying.

    Probably just waiting for the next coal mine disaster to beat to death.
