Where is Raed ? Getting referred to this site was the thing that first got me interested in blogging. If Salam could post his thoughts directly from Iraq, then "normal" people could actually find out what was going on there in real time, so to speak. I've tried to talk about the differences in what is portrayed about the Middle East by the media and what is really happening to the email lists that I belong to. Most of them are not political and more aimed at veterinary or equine subjects, so it's sort of a transit from the topic line. With a blog you can say whatever you like and whoever happens across your blog can read it. Sort of like a cybernetic note in a bottle. My dad would have loved it. Raed is definitely worth a read.
