So close! I'm seriously on pins and needles about this. It's hard to believe the whole $25K won't come through, but at this point it's a 50-50 guess either way. If you've been sitting on the fence, now would be a good time to clamber down and pony up (sorry for the mixed metaphors).
In other Afghanistan-related news, looks like I'll have at least one more cartoonist as a traveling companion (no, they won't be reporting from there, they're along for the ride).
