The Road goes ever on and on

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Hamid Karzai was sworn in Tuesday as Afghanistan's first popularly elected president, calling for sustained help from the international community to bolster a young democracy that still faces the twin threats of terrorism and drugs.
"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."

"The Bush administration is holding up a bill that would significantly expand GI bill benefits for reservists who are on continuuous duty for two or more consecutive years.

The bill, entitled The Veterans Benefits Improvement Bill of 2004 would bring reserve component benefits into closer alignment with active duty benefits - a recognition of the greatly expanded role of reserve component forces in the War on Terror."
