Michael Yon

Life is about taking chances and Michael Yon deserves some admiration. His reporting has be nominated for a Pulitzer. It is clearly more than a "blog."

He recommends a new story in the January 2006 National Geographic. There is a preview here. As always the magazine does an excellent job visually, at least as far as the slideshow preview is concerned. Ia m sure that the article is top-notch as well. It makes me wonder whether the Iraq war may be valuable even if it does nothing else but give the Kurds a chance...

Perhaps we should consider this as Genocide in Africa reaches our ears.
