Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Baghdad Café

Is it a sign of progress that new Iraqi blogs (genuine, as far as I can tell) are springing up like toadstools after the rain?

  • Where is Raed ? the grandaddy of Iraqi bloggers, Salam Pax blogged the build-up to the war, right through the invasion. He’s still going strong.
  • G. in Baghdad a young Iraqi Christian and friend of Salam’s.
  • Baghdad Burning, a 21 year old female CS graduate in Baghdad.

I don’t know, but after all the bad news coming out of Iraq recently, one looks for signs of improvement wherever one can find them.

Update (10/22/2003): Add Healing Iraq and Ishtar to the list.

CNN.com & theonion.com ? Yeah, I get them confused all the time, too!

I usually think going to the Guardian is a better choice for VALID info than anything our mainstream media puts out.
