Pardon My Italian, Understatement of the Week

Sorry, can't bring myself to say, "Pardon my French," even if I could speak either. Interesting times indeed, via Instapundit, http://instapundit.com/archives/018832.php . Greg at Gscobe posts:

There is a curse of disputed origin but popularly credited to the Chinese that reads: "May you live in interesting times."Consider yourself cursed. This is certainly going to be an interesting week. Consider the twin specters of the reloaded assault on Falluja and Ramadi coupled with a potentially turbulent Presidential election.Domestically we face the very real possibility of electoral disarray with no clear winner on election night, the possibility of violence at the polls and lawsuits thereafter.
