"An attack by hundreds of Iraqi militia members on the U.S. government's headquarters in Najaf on Sunday was repulsed not by the U.S. military, but by eight commandos from a private security firm, according to sources familiar with the incident."

I'm planning on hitting the Mayan exhibit! I would've tried opening day but I was just down there the day before for the cherry blossoms. Oh, and it probably would have been packed chocked to the gills with Mayan enthusists.

Indeed, please let me know when you're going, if you wanna make a trip of it.
