My friend Cami McCormick blasted by terrorists.

CBS News Correspondent Cami McCormick was injured Friday in Afghanistan while on assignment for CBS Radio News. McCormick joined CBS News in September, 1998 and has reported on such stories as the September 11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War. She's also won five Edward R. Murrow awards.

According to CBS News, McCormick was traveling with members of the U.S. Army when the vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED). McCormick was initially treated at a field hospital, where she underwent surgery to stabilize her condition, and was then transported to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for additional treatment.

I report this on my blog because Cami & I worked together in New Orleans at WEZB-97. We were all so young then. Cami was a blast. I wish her and her family all the very best.

Identify the weed.

Identify the weed. This baby popped up in the 10 days I was away on vacation. It's actually much larger than it appears.
