For the past hour I've been watching a program on C-Span's BOOK TV that has been revelatory. The broadcast (delayed from June 8) featured readings from blogs emanating from Iraq. And that brings me to today's plea -- Please put this URL in your favorites list and start reading this blog:
The author of this blog is an Iraqi woman in her twenties, a former computer professional, who has been posting her observations of life in Iraq during the war. If, like me, you've been profoundly frustrated by the American media's coverage of the life of Iraqis (you know the drill -- 20 second responses from people in the street, with no context -- no idea who is who or what is what), then this blog site will go a long way toward telling you what life on the ground is like these days.
