An article in the Guardian, “Top 10 books about the Iraq war”* made me aware of the Baghdad Burning blog:
The blog content has been released in book form, with two volumes. After reading through the first few entries on the blog I didn’t hesitate to order the books.

Most of the emails moved me to… gratitude. Thank you for understanding… no, thank you for even *trying* to understand. Other emails, on the other hand, were full of criticism, cynicism and anger. You really don’t have to read my blog if you don’t want to and you certainly don’t have to email me telling me how much you hate it. It’s great to get questions and differing opinions- but please be intelligent about it, and above all, creative- if I want to hear what Fox News has to say, I’ll watch it.
And keep one thing in mind- tanks and guns can break my bones, but emails can be deleted.
