We Have A Straight

With the capture of the tenth of the 52 Iraqi playing cards, we now have a straight, actually a choice of a 45678 or a 56789 straight -- assuming the appropriate discards were made along the way, of course. Then again, why not just forget about discards and call it three pair?

Some time in the next 24 hours, I plan to move the card pictures to a separate file, with a button here, adding the names and titles of the corresponding thugs, with links to the Command Post entries on their captures.

By the way, a friend (hi, Malcolm!) suggests one possible way to make this into a competitive game: assign each card to whoever made the capture, Army, Marines, Iraqi National Congress, whoever.
