A Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight?
The cable networks are reporting from embeds that US troops are inside Baghdad and there is much watching of the "Bagcams" to see them show up at the traffic circle near the Palestine hotel where the cams are located. So far just occasional small arms fire and police cars roaring around.

Update: If you are going to join the Bagcam crowd, you'll need a broadband connection. Also the feeds often temporarily conk out - you'll have to hunt around. See for a list of the more popular links. I have to say though, that it is akin to watching paint dry. One moderate source of amusement is CBS newsdroid Laura Logan when she is heard on the NTV Bagcam - she tends to curse a lot while recording her bits for various news outlets.
