Best Wishes For Congressman Murphy

My local Congressman, Dr. Tim Murphy, has been injured in Iraq:

A military vehicle carrying U.S. politicians overturned on the way to the Baghdad airport yesterday and injured two members of Congress, including Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Upper St. Clair.

Mr. Murphy was airlifted to a military hospital in Germany for an MRI on his neck, said Rep. Jim Marshall, who was also in the vehicle. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., was sent to a Baghdad hospital, Mr. Marshall told the Macon Telegraph.

Mr. Marshall, a Georgia Democrat, said he was not hurt.

From what I have heard about the highways running in and out of Baghdad, no one wastes any time getting to where they are going. It's so dangerous that terrorists don't need to bother setting up traps.

These Congressmen were visiting troops in Baghdad on the way back from Thanksgiving in Afghanistan. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
