The year that was 

This year, the United States invaded Iraq, learned the president lied about the reason for waging war on Iraq (weapons of mass destruction, anyone?), and then watched as Special Forces found Saddam Hussein hiding in a hole swarming with cockroaches and spiders.

What a year!

It removes a yoke from a lot of the citizens of Iraq because they are fearful of him coming back and this convinces them that he is not coming back. Now they can be more relaxed, enjoy their lives more and help us catch more of the bad guys. -  - What was the most important thing that happened to you in 2003? I've grown a lot closer to my family. I'm going to try to put aside a lot of my negative thinking and be more positive and have more relations with my family. -  - What was your New Year's resolution last year? It's going to be the same one that I'll have this year, which is trying to get over my habit of procrastination. It's the worst vice that I have. -  - What would be the best news in 2004? The war to improve in our favor. I'm hoping it will improve to the point that we can start bringing our guys home.

A lot of people in Colorado Springs are going to have their lives affected by that. A lot of people are hoping that people they know will be coming home from war. -  - What was your New Year's resolution last year? I don't make New Year's resolutions. Every day I do what I feel like I need to be doing. I make a resolution every day. -  - What would be the best news in 2004? For me, it would be to get a huge inheritance and to not have to worry about paying rent every month with what I currently make.

Iraq might turn out to be a nice place now that he has been caught and once [Osama] bin Laden is caught as well. -  - What was the most important thing that happened to you in 2003? I got engaged and then I got married in the Garden of the Gods in August of this year. -  - What was your New Year's resolution last year? To not drink so much, but it didn't work out. I'll try and do the same this year but I don't think that it will work either. -  - What would be the best news in 2004? Now that they have Saddam, it would be the best if they caught [Osama] bin Laden. I know the world would be a better place without him.
