Mortar rounds are apparently falling with regularity in Baghdad (and nowhere else, unless I've missed a bit of news). A few deaths and injuries related to that.

Watching live shots of polling centers getting ever more crowded, it is definitely apparent that Iraqis are turning out to vote. However, I am also quite afraid of the terrorist mindset: Terrorists are watching the same satellite feeds, and are aware that death on live TV is quite mediagenic. I only hope that the media acts in a responsible manner, and realizes that these Iraqis are risking their lives for democracy.
