Where did they get all that newspaper?

The new kite is much bigger than the first kite, but will it fly?

Kite Number Two Makes Its Debut: Heidi and the boss display the new, improved model. Bigger is always better.

I don't know about the rest of you, but that's good enough for me! Congratulations, boys and a job well-done.

One final note....

I refuse to even comment on the following except for the fact the word coward kept popping into my mind when I read the article. I wanted to make sure you saw it.

Taliban Commander Caught in Afghanistan

By Rahim Faiez, Associated Press Writer

Afghan soldiers caught a senior Taliban commander at a checkpoint who was wearing a burqa, while NATO forces on Wednesday fought Taliban militants in the second day of the alliance's largest-ever offensive in Afghanistan.

Mullah Mahmood, who is accused of helping the Taliban detonate suicide bombs, was caught Tuesday in Kandahar province while wearing the all-encompassing Islamic veil worn here by women, NATO said.

"Alert (Afghan) soldiers at this checkpoint spotted the oddity and quickly arrested him," NATO said.

Mahmood was caught trying to leave the Panjwayi area of Kandahar province — the site of a large NATO battle last fall where hundreds of Taliban fighters were killed, NATO said.
