“Basra’s Back in Business.”

Time magazine has a photo essay titled “Basra’s Back in Business.” In a collection of 11 photographs, Abbie Trayler-Smith captures a welcome normalcy in the Iraq province. It is a beautiful collection that implicitly — the editors don’t explicitly give credit where it’s due — praises the allied efforts in Basra. A photo essay depicting normalcy in the lives of Iraqi citizens is a welcome sign — and a sign of progress that the media will be more likely to celebrate now that President Bush has left office.
