So I'm on my way to the IZ...

And I am sitting in the terminal at the military side of Baghdad International Airport. A civilian fellow sitting next to me turns and asks if my first name is _____. He has it exactly right. He then introduces himeself... his work was featured here. We had exchanged some very pleasant e-mails, and he had come here to Iraq quite some time back.

It's a small world out there for bloggers sometimes.

Small world indeed. I used to work there and found blogging the only thing to do aside from work. Don't forget to check out the Saddam heads.

So you got the helo ride to Washington? Hell of a trip...

In some ways I wish I could have been there at least till you arrived. Sadly, my donut was consumed.

Michael Totten is headed that way this fall, though.

Maybe I can offer to get Totten lunch at the Phoenix Base DFAC...
